I have been trying for a few days to open a .pps file (power point slide show) from within my program, I have tried the following.
ShellExecute(NULL, "open", "\\Test.ppt", NULL, "C:\\Program Files\\Pyrosoft\\Utilities", SW_MAXIMIZE); system("start C:\\Program Files\\Pyrosoft\\Utilities\\Test.ppt");
Both methods can open .txt files, in the same folder, but not .ppt
I have also tried with 2 different programs to converty the .ppt to an avi video and run it that way, which, didn't work either.
Does anyone know either why it wont open it, or another way to go about it?
