    If you are running Powerpoint 2003 and having problems with background images after applying the April Microsoft patches see Powerpoint 2003 hotfix for a description and download link.

    Hello, I'm a most definite 'newbie' here and my question concerns PowerPoint 2003 and the update that came out yesterday(Patch Tuesday 5 10 11).
    I found this on Woody's site last night: "If you install the PowerPoint 2003 patch MS11-022 KB 2464588 and all of a sudden you can’t open PowerPoint files, you need to install the hotfix offered in KB 2543241."

    Now, my question is this: I don't have Office on this computer and there was no update for the stand alone PowerPoint 2003 that I do have...all I had in the way of updates was the MRT. Is there an update for my PowerPoint? and if so, where do I get it?

    Thank you in advance, hope I made some sense to you and I sincerely hope this is the correct thread to ask this question in...jdc

    Do you have SP-3 installed? It is a prerequisite for those patches.

    No, I don't have the program Office, just the stand alone PowerPoint 2003, downloaded from Microsoft,
    that's why I'm confused as to whether or not there is an update for PowerPoint for me? or is it just for PowerPoint within the Office prog.?

    Thank you, Joe

    Office 2003 Sp-3 applies to all Office programs including Powerpoint. See Office 2003 Sp3 for download link and more details.
