Unable to type Chinese characters in PowerPoint 2007

fandg used Ask the Experts™
I have a client who recently added a language bar.  Since then, he is unable to type any chinese characters in Powerpoint 2007.  This client can type Chinese characters in other MS Office applications though; just not Powerpoint.

Troubleshooting so far:  ran Microsoft Office Scrub to remove and reinstall MS Office, checked east language pack, removed and re-added Chinese language in Powerpoint.

Open a text editor and copy the following text into the editor:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



Save the file as PP_Chinese.reg

Go to My Computer, double click PP_Chinese.reg and click ok. Done! You can type Chinese into PowerPoint 2007 now.
