MS PowerPoint allows creating presentations viewable on any computer, even those that do not have the PowerPoint application installed. But what makes it really inconvenient is the necessity to click on the “Accept” button every time you open a file; besides, the number of files is so great… How nice would it be to turn this whole set into a single executable file!
So, on the main menu, select: File -> Prepare for CD and then click on the “Copy to Folder…” button.
You should get a set of files similar to this one:
To launch the presentation, you will need to use the play.bat file, which contains the command:
@pptview.exe /L “playlist.txt”
The content of playlist.txt file is:
Launch BoxedApp Packer, add the files, configure the command line
You can also make it the way that it would skip showing the prompt screen when the application starts:
Now click “Generate EXE…” and get a single packed file that doesn’t need any other files. When it is run, it will start demonstrating the slide show right off.
