I do not have a need to install MS PowerPoint, but I occasionally get PPS files as attachments in my Outlook Express emails that I would like to open. However, I always get an error condition that says: This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folders Options control panel. Short
version: I mucked around and downloaded MS's PowerPoint Viewer software and stored it in my C:\Programs Files folder. I still could not open PPS files directly in OE. Short version: I found that if I copied the PPS files over to My Documents folder, I only needed to double click one to open it.
I looked at the File Types dialog in Control Panel|Folder Options, but could not see how one creates a proper association.
How can I open these PPS files directly in Outlook Express?
