Right-click on the button object (in PP)
choose action settings and then you can click on the run command

If you go into Powerpoint and go View - Toolbars - Visual basic you'll get a toolbar through which you can add VB code to your powerpoint presentation.

To run an executable:

e.g.
Public Sub DoIt()

Shell "Notepad.exe"

End Sub

Put something on a slide, right-click on the object, go to Action Settings. Now you can choose to run a macro. Choose DoIt

I draw a button in Paint and used the Action Settings option.
It's not what I was looking for, but it works, so thanks.
