There is a problem if you try to open an email attachment that is a PowerPoint presentation if:

  1. You are using Outlook Express
  2. You are running Windows XP, SP-2
  3. You have the PowerPoint 2003 Viewer installed
  4. You DO NOT have the full PowerPoint application installed

Shyam Pillai has developed a small (128 KB) program that will correct the problem and allow you to open presentation file attachments directly from your email in Outlook Express.

Download and install the PowerPoint Viewer Registry Fix program at PowerPoint Viewer Registry Fix

Extract and run pvregfix.exe
