I need to know how to EMBED a WMV file into a PowerPoint 2007 Presentation so that it can play in slideshow mode without having the file on the computer at all. (Only in the PPT presentation)  We need to do it this way so that we can put the presentation in a document management system and that system does not allow for files to be linked to one another, etc.
I have tried all of the obvious things as shown below and htey have not worked...

1 - Copied and pasted the movie file directly onto a slide
2 - Imported movie to clip organizer then added to slide saved and played it and it worked but it requires the file be in the same location as the PPT presentation.
3 - Tried to create an object package and it would not play. It skipped the slide. I even setup a custom animation for it and it still passed the slide up in slide show mode.
4  Tried to import as an obj. created from a file&Did not have enough memory to activate contents after I added it to the slide.
5 - Tried developer mode  > More codes&.added WMV&did not work
Any good ideas?

Powerpoint will  always link to an external file. and it has to be in the same relative folder
2 options:
1) put the WMV file into the document managent system as well (or the whole powerponit folder)
2) convert the powerpoint slideshow to a movie and store that in the DMS
