    Can't open pps attachment (OE6 WinXP SP2 )

    On a client pc, since upgrading win xp to sp2, I can't any more open the pps attachments in mails in OE6.
    I get the message that there are no program for this attachment, go to map options ...
    The extensions pps and ppt exist in the map options and if in explorer I click on a pps file it opens with the pp viewer 2003. Also if it is the saved attachment of the mail. But directly I can't open it. All other extensions (doc, pdf, xls,...) work as expected.
    Any thoughts ?
    Thanks

    Problem Solved.
    In the folder option the path to pptview.exe was not surrounded by quotes like it should as in was installed in a subfolder from Program files (with space).
    Thanks Microsoft for the lost time.
