Hi
I have a midi file to play during a slideshow, when user clicks on a picture
The midi neither plays in 2007 or 2010, however it plays in Windows.  I don't think it is being "blocked" as I have set location as trusted and clicked ok to any warning.s

Please help to resolve.

Thank-you

If yoiu inserted the MIDI into the presentation in PPT 2007, then the MIDI was linked. In that case, I'd check the path length. In fact, just put the MIDI in the same folder with the presentation and then re-insert it and see if that fixes things.
