Howdy and welcome to GTG:

Based on your statement about using the product key, I assume you either have PowerPoint as a standalone program or Office. Correct?

What happens when you enter the product code?

The viewer was included with the computer when new. However, have downloaded ppv 3 and ppv 7 with the same results. Still asks for product key and when entered, says invalid key. I didn't think that a key was needed after downloading product to be used just for viewing. The main problem is that I cannot view any pp slides sent via my email. I do not need the whole office program. Any help is appreciated.

Okay. Go into Add/Remove Programs located in the Control Panel. Find all installed viewers and remove them.

Now, download and install THIS VIEWER.

If it doesn't work, try THIS ONE.

U r a saint, however, I have already downloaded from those sites with the same results. I think that there has to be an uninstalled trial version existing on my 'puter that I have not identified as yet. Why else would the thing ask for a produ ct key? If I close the box that is requesting the key it closes the email as well. Will continue to work on it but if u have more knowledge, please inform. Tks.....wong :)

Have you checked your Add/Remove Programs area for PP or Microsoft Office?

Hey again. Found Office and uninstalled. Then installed 2007 Viewer. Still get the same respone that a product key is required. Sooooooo - uninstalled 2007 Viewer again. Searched for Office and Viewer and get that it is in Drive C. Went there and sure enough, it shows it. I found the folder that says pptview and have seven folders within. Do I delete these or just the ppviewer or what??? Ur help is wonderful! :)

Just wanted to add one more thing. If the box asking for the product key does not come up when trying to view the e-mls, then a box saying that this file does not have an association with it, does. I only know that files must have the appropriate association with them, but that is it. Do not have any idea how to correct or create associations. Thanks :) again.

Wipe out everything and then re-install only the PPTViewer.

As for the association, right click the file in question and you should get an option to associate a program. Just choose the viewer.
