Question Using Slideshow - Do you need PowerPoint?

Hello,



This is my first post here.....I am so happy that I found this resource!

I have several PowerPoint presentations that I created usinjg PP2010. I wanted to deliver them as a slideshow to potential clients.

My question is this....if I save them as a slideshow, does the 'end user' need to have PowerPoint installed on their computer? I was hoping that somehow I could just give them a copy to view and not worry about the fact that they may or may not have PowerPoint and which version they are using.

Do you have any ideas or solutions I could attempt?

I appreciate any time or effort you put into this.

Many thanks!

Dave

PPT viewer is a free resource and will be required to view PPT presentations. I know in 2003 you can click on package for cd and it will automatically include PPT viewer for the user. If the viewer still seems like a problem use a gif creation program. export all of your slides a pictures and show it that way. Windows movie maker can make gifs from pictures.

Sorry for the late reply good luck.

Package for CD in 2010 does NOT include the viewer the recipient has to install it.

If you don't need the new features in 2010 you could try this
Old Style Auto Run CD with a viewer
