I am using Powerpoint 2003 on a Windows 7 computer with an ATI Radeon HD 4200 series display adapter.

Can I stream the Powerpoint slides to my projector using a DLNA device?  If yes, how.

Thanks

No. Not as .ppt files, anyway.

Windows Media Player is the only way I know of to use Win7's Send To or Play To functions for multimedia files, but WMP won't open .ppt files.

In powerpoint 2007 I see a Presentation View on the Slide Show tab... supposedly that allows you to view it in one resolution on the local screen while the projector is displaying it in the projector's resolution. Do you see that in PP2003?

Possibly you could convert the powerpoint file to MP4 or another video format using a tool like
http://www.xilisoft.com/webapp/downloader.php?product_code=x-powerpoint-to-video-converter-free&version=1.0.0.0
then stream it from a DLNA server to the projector using WMP, assuming the projector shows up as a Play To device in WMP. Have you looked in WMP to see if the projector shows up there?
e.g.WMP - PlayTo Devices (click for larger)

PowerPoint 2010 (and I assume 2013) can save presentations directly to WMV, by the way.

It does.

However, video files do not permit the interaction I need that PP provides.

I am hoping there is a utility that will send the video card output to the DLNA much like the dual monitor setting does.

I disagree. My answer in http:#a39960615 is correct.
to wit: No. Not as .ppt files, anyway.

Sometimes, the correct answer is "you can't do that!"
