Installed MS Office 2010 on new laptop. If one clicks directly on any PowerPoint file that contains pictures the following error message appears, “Other files exist. The selected locations do not contain pictures to review. Other files or folders exist but cannot be previewed.” Yet, if PowerPoint is launched and one then goes to the file from within the application the file with open.
Here is what I have done so far:
• Uninstalled and re-installed MS Office 2010 after restart
• Installed MS Office 2010 SP1
• Tried the Right Click Open With method
• Did the usual MS Support jump-through-the-hoops and did not find Click and Run apps nor any other MS applet that might be installed and interfering with PP
The gist of this issue is that any PowerPoint file that contains pictures will not open if they are clicked on directly. They WILL open if PowerPoint is up and running and the file is opened WITHIN the application.
