    PowerPoint Viewer 2007

    On my computer I have PowerPoint 2007, a friend recommended that I install PowerPoint Viewer. After searching for information about the viewer I read that it's for those who do not have PowerPoint installed.

    Is it a good idea to have both on the same system? My friend said that the viewer was easier to use so I would like to switch. If I do should I remove Office PowerPoint 2007?

    Feel free to move this post, I think I probably posted this to the wrong board.

    IMO, if you already have Powerpoint 2007 on your system leave it alone. To me, it does not make sense to uninstall a product that is already working just to be able to install something that is a lesser product. If you EVER have a need to change a Powerpoint presentation you need the full product. Whether or not the view is easier to use is most likely a matter of what you are used to. I don't find the full product difficult at all to use.

    If your issue is with learning how to use Powerpoint then perhaps you ought to start with Office PowerPoint 2007 product overview - PowerPoint - Microsoft Office Online or one of the highly rated (four or five star) books at Amazon.com: powerpoint 2007: Books.

    Do I understand that I should remove the viewer? I hardly think both are required.

    Sorry about posting on the wrong board, I've used this forum long enough to know better.

    Both are definitely not required. Personally, I'd remove the viewer.

    PowerPoint 2007 NEEDS to have the viewer installed to create Package for CD files!!!

    However if you have PowerPoint 2007 you already have the viewer as it comes with the standard installation, there's no need to download another copy.
