I cant open pps attachments even though I have powerpoint viewer installed. It has worked just fine for a couple of years but now all of a sudden I keep getting the message :
"This file does not have a programme associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel."
I have followed the advice given in another post which I had tried previously myself but nothing works. I have also deleted and installed powerpoint viewer again but still no success. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Ian't help you with powerpoint viewer, but if you need a program to open .pps files, the freeware program XnView will do it.

Hi tabj.
Are you using the older version of PPViewer or have you installed PPViewer 2003?
The older version doesn't work with the newer versions of PP.
