powerpoint 2003 doesn't play my avi file (black hole) but pp 2000 has no problem

the powerpoint presentation I made on Office 2000/ Windows2000 plays my avifiles ( Cinepac codec) correctly.
on a windows 2000 machine with powerpoint 2003 there is just a black window. framerate 25f/sec, datarate 580KB/sec.
can anybody help me with this problem?
our customer uses office 2003, but in our agency we work with office 2000, therefore we have no possiblity to try it on a office 2003.

thanks

Hi clockwork-orange,

Powerpoint in my understanding doesnot play video files by itself. It depends on other players like windows media player

Make sure windows media player in the windows 2000 machine that has pp 2003 is fully updated.

Go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and update windows
Go to http://officeupdate.microsoft.com and update Powerpoint
Restart and check how it goes

SR..

I have the same problem and it didn't solve the issue here...  I have un-installed PowerPoint 2003 only and installed the 2000 premium version and works again.

me neither... the only way i found was to un-install and install 2000 premium for PowerPoint only... i hope to find a way later so i can install only 2003.
