    Clone download woes (PowerPoint 2000)

    Hi folks,

    I get an error 91 when I try to clone a perfectly fine
    PowerPoint slideshow. I am testing the program Clone, and
    if it doesn't work on a perfectly fine slide show, how is
    it supposed to work on a corrupted one? Give me some
    feedback please. I teach this program at College level,
    and would like to give my students some feedback or
    better - working results! I've already done the following:
    When you double-click the Cloneme.exe file, the following file is extracted to the folder you choose:
    CloneMe.ppa

    Microsoft recommends that you place this file in the C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice folder. To set up the add-in, follow these steps: Note* I also tried placing it in the addins folder to see if that made a difference...nope
    1) Start Microsoft PowerPoint. If you see the startup dialog box, click Cancel.
    2) On the Tools menu, click Add-Ins.
    3) Click Add New.
    4) Select the CloneMe.ppa file and click OK.
    To use the add-in, click Clone Presentation on the Tools menu.

    NOTE: The presentation you want to clone must be open for you to clone it. If the file is so corrupted that it cannot be opened, you cannot use this add-in.

    Re: Clone download woes (PowerPoint 2000)

    Nannette, I just tested the Clone AddIn and it worked fine for me. Does it fail on other presentations or just the one. This is what I did:
    I have PP2K SR1 running on a Win XP/Pro system.
    I downloaded cloneme.exe from Q193848
    I doubleclicked cloneme.exe, it asked where to place CloneMe.xla, I browsed to C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice
    I started PowerPoint and used the Auto-Content Wizard to create the BrainStorming presentation
    I followed your/Microsoft's instructions to load CloneMe
    I used the Tools | Clone Presentation to create a copy of the presentation.
    Does following those steps work for you?

    BTW, changing the subject, I noticed that you are a MOUS Master Instructor. Is this for XP? What did you use to study for the Outlook cert? I can't seem to learn enough Outlook to think that I can pass the test: they are miserable. I've passed Excel, Word, and PowerPoint, but am stuck on Outlook. What does the teacher say? TIA --Sam

    I will try what you have suggested asap...am diligently working on this topic and netmeeting and powerpoint online conferencing at the same time this morning...will get to it in just a few and let you know how it goes...or if I'm still running into a jam.
    Yes, I am MOS (no longer MOUS) Instructor Certified. In 2000. I am taking the 2002 as soon as our college budget passes here very shortly. I was a bit leary of taking the Outlook exam only because it's been 4-5 years since I taught it out to ISMD on base, but I have landed a copy of the CD that Certiport offers each exam taker here at the college to practice test themselves, (it looks and feels like the real exam), and should "NOT" have worried (it is core level), and I made a 98 on the practice, so don't fret. Look around for Certiport offered exams and you will find most test centers will give you the practice CD for exams and they help a lot. Other then that, I just drew back on what I remembered when teaching it years ago, if you can remember how to send mail, make an appointment, check someones calander and do some basic outlook setup options you'll do fine. I also rely heavily on my QUE books, from Woody (they are my second Bible, but Outlook isn't that tough)...have you gone to the MOS site (mous.net) and looked at the requirements for it? They aren't much to fuss about. All basic stuff, and that's good because I don't do anything other then send mail with it now. [img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img] It all came back.
    Let you know how it goes here with this clone thing asap.

    Re: Clone download woes (PowerPoint 2000)

    Sammy,
    I just tried it on another presentation, and it worked fine. Don't know what the deal is, but that should have been my first solution. Try it on another one before i hollar. Geesh! If we'd only take our own advice once in a while...heehee. Thanks Sammy.

    > another presentation ... worked fine
    Well, it seems like it should work for everthing, can you attach the presentation that it dosn't work on?

    Re: MOS. I think that you will find the XP certs to be harder. Excel and Word (expert) were hard, but not too bad, but I was sure I was going to flunk PowerPoint (basics) <img src=/S/exclamation.gif border=0 alt=exclamation width=15 height=15> --Sam

    Re: Clone download woes (PowerPoint 2000)

    Sammy,
    I'm not sure how much differences there are in the two exams, but have taken the practice exams 60-80 questions each for them from the Certiport CD. Did in the 90's on all of them (XP)...it says if you do in the 75ish range, then you are more then ready to take on the exams...stop scaring me. ( HA! ) ....
    The presentation was one I through together this morning to practice bringing in an outline from Word (am proofing a supplemental book I am writing for classwork)...so there isn't much to it, but take a look and see if you have any better luck.
    Nannette....PS maybe it's because It came from an outline in Word and is not based on a Template...just a thought.

    Excellent thought and exactly correct! Add a design template and CloneMe works! Seems as if MS could have documented its assumptions! Another fine Microsoft product... <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39>
    With thoughts like those, maybe you will pass the MOS! Of course by the time you get the funding, we will be running Office/Net! <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15> For me, I'm too old to take tests! <img src=/S/gramps.gif border=0 alt=gramps width=20 height=20> Sam

    Sammy,
    (HA!) You are more then likely 'very' correct in assuming we will be running Office/Net by the time the funds come through, especially with NC State Gov in such a bind this year...and you are NEVER to old...if you can put up with answering all these sometimes inane, comical, interesting, problem scenarios that come through these doors from users like me, then YOU are quite ready to "knock 'em dead" on any test you take...Good luck, and GO FOR IT.
    Thanks for your help as always, it is "soooo" appreciated.

    Re funds. I know what you mean. I also teach at Clark State Community College. The budget is insane! I'm glad to be an Adjunct: I only do what's fun for me! --Sam
