Looping a Powerpoint file with Viewer 2007

I have created a Powerpoint presentation on my pc using Powerpoint 2007. The problem is that I don't have the Powerpoint software on my laptop to be able to view it, so I installed the viewer 2007. This runs the presentation fine, but what I would like is the file to loop to the beginning and run continuously until I manually end it. Will the viewer do this or is there some kind of program that I can create or use that will enable me to do this? BTW, I'm using Windows XP for the record.

Thanks in advance!

Run powerpoint viewer from the command line (start->run):

c:\path\to\viewer\ppview32.exe /L "Presentation to show.ppt"

The /L is what causes the presentation to loop

That works fine, thanks.
Just wondering also, is there a way to create a screensaver out of a powerpoint that includes animations and transitions?

Thanks again
