I'm trying to use producer to convert NARRATED powerpoint presentations into windows media files that can be downloaded from our website, then viewed. I downloaded the Producer add-in, uninstalled/reinstalled three different times....the add-in does NOT show up anywhere in powerpoint, even if I find the add-in file and try to add it...it just does nothing. Anyway, I save the Powerpoint presentation to html, (so as so separate the audio files and the slides), then I try to create a project using Producer directly, by importing these files. However, it ALWAYS CRASHES! Sometimes I'll get as far as creating the project, and being able to save it...but soon after the program will just crash. No error msg or anything, just shutdown. Especially if I try to publish, or preview the project. Why is this happening?? I've checked my microsoft updates, and it's all up to date! I'm using Powerpoint 2003. Someone please help me! Thanks!!
If you have a better solution to create streaming or downloadable (Realplayer or WMP) narrated powerpoint presentations that cannot be altered or copied in any way...please let me know! I'm fed up with Producer!
