I am using PowerPoint 2013.  I have a windows XP machine, (and a Windows 10 machine that acts the same way) that I am having trouble getting the PowerPoint slide show to continue at the end.  It wants to keep going to the "End of slide show, Click to exit".

I have the "Slide Show / Set up Slide Show" option set to "Browsed at a kiosk (full screen).  And, the "Loop continuously until Esc" selected.
I have the slide show file saved as a ".ppsx" file type and it is being played with PowerPoint Viewer.

Am I missing another setting somewhere?
I even made a new slide show with just a single number on each of the 4 pages to see if it would cycle thru and it still does the same thing.
