I need a vbscript to run a power point SHOW. It is not a slide show(.ppt). It is in  .pps format and the location is in C:\test.pps

Thanks,
Paul

The above was set up against my testing environment,  I should have edited it to match your request as follows:
set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") 
WshShell.Run "cmd /c  C:\test.pps" 

Open in new window


One could also use a regular batch file containing the single line:
c:\test.pps

Open in new window
