My brother has a Medion laptop running Vista Home Premium SP1.
He wanted to open a .pps file and as he doesn't have Office installed downloaded the Powerpoint viewer from Microsoft.
Unfortunately, when he tries to open the file he still gets the message..
Do you want to open this file? Type. Microsoft Powerpoint Slide Show."
When he clicks OK he gets this message...
"This file does not have a program associated with it for performing the action. Create an association in the Set Associations Control Panel."
I suggested right-clicking on the file and using 'Open with' - but the Open With option is missing from the context menu.
Looking in Control Panel at file associations the .pps extension is already associted with the Powerpoint viewer.
Any ideas welcome.
