    AVI Files (2007)

    We have some PowerPoint 2003 files with AVI linked and they work just great on a XP, Office 2003 and Media Player 11. BUT the AVI will NOT play on a Vista, Office 2007, and Media Player 11 machine. We get the following "Video not available, can not find 'vids:dvsd' decompressor".

    This happens on both Vista machines that we have and the AVI files will work when opened using Media player but not through PowerPoint.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Does it help if you change the extension from .avi to .mpg (and recreate the link)?

    Yes, it does, now to go and rename new files types and then change the Powerpoint files.

    Thanks, Hans
