    controlling PowerPoint on the command line (2000)

    How could I open the PowerPoint Viewer via the windows command prompt? At the same time I want to determine the name (path) of a presentation and the display where the presentation will be seen.

    Re: controlling PowerPoint on the command line (2000)

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    If you have the PowerPoint 2003 Viewer (which can be used with presentations created in PowerPoint 97, 2000, 2002 and 2003), the command line looks like this:

    "C:Program FilesPowerPoint ViewerPPTView.exe" "Cocuments and SettingsMyNameMy DocumentsMy Presentation.ppt"

    You must substitute the correct path for PPTView.exe, and the path and filename of the presentation. There is no switch to specify a display, as far as I know.

    See List of command line switches for PowerPoint 2003 Viewer for more info.
