How to schedule powerpoint slides to be inserted into show at a later date and turn off at a certain date/time?

Hello Experts,

Well you guys helped me a lot on a previous question about this, but I desperately need to know something that is one step further.  So I asked previously how I go about getting a program of some kind to be able to automatically insert individual slides into an already running powerpoint show and it was recommended to me to use the add-in "planpoint".  This is fantastic, except for one BIG problem.  Planpoint does not have the option to be able to set a slide to insert on said time on said date and remove on different said time and said date.  For example, I want to schedule a slide to be inserted into the running show on Monday at 9:00am and turn off on Tuesday at 4:00pm.  With planpoint, you can only schedule the slide to run during a time period both days, like 9-4 on Monday and 9-4 on Tuesday.  I want to be able to put the slide in at 9am on Monday and have it run constantly until 4pm on Tuesday when it is then removed.  Is there anything out there that will allow me to do this?  I am desperate for something that will make this work.  I don't care if I have to pay for it.  Please help and many thanks in advance.

PlanPoint is the only available app i know.

It could be custom coded of course but that might be fairly expensive.

Like how much?  It's for a company so they might pay w/e it is, but just would like to know ballpark of how much and also where I would go to look for someone who would do it?
JSRWilson may not toot his own horn here, but I will tell you he's a very talented programmer who specializes in PowerPoint add-ins. I'm sure he could help you. (I'll leave ballparking up to him.)
