    Links to MPG files and AVI Files (Office 2003)

    I can create a link to an avi file, But for some reason powerpoint balks at insert object, create link to file which is an mpg file.
    Any suggestions, I have a new IBM Thinkpad T42 that has dvd sofware on it from the factory

    Check out Sonia Coleman's Microsoft PowerPoint and Multimedia.
    Among possible causes are
    - path too long (max 128 characters)
    - mpg not present in the registry (see HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionMCI Extensions)
