    Default opening .pps files windows 7 with wml

    have associated .pps files in default programs with ms ppv & when i get a pps
    file in wml, it asks for a file association. have googled til i'm blue in the
    face & found only vista solutions. have gone into the registry & found
    powerpointviewer, but can't change "show" to "open" because there's already a
    subsection there titled "open." so how can i get microsoft's powerpoint
    viewer to open files when i receive them in windows live mail using windows
    7? thx

    Did you check that in both places as explained here?

    Unable to open .PPS attachments directly from Windows Mail in Windows
    Vista:
    http://www.winhelponline.com/article...ows-Vista.html

    Do this next:

    Save the attachment to your HDD. Right click on it and Open With | Choose
    Program. Find and choose a program that works, (PPV), and then check the
    box: Always use this program to open this kind of file. This should enable
    you to open these attachments in the future.

    I have a trial version of office 2007 that I don't care to use. When I open
    a pps file in mail it defaults to the trial version and wants me to turn it
    on. I don't need office 2007 so I down loaded pp veiwer. When I tried to
    change the association file to ppv I cannot find the progrom listed. If I
    change the the at regedit will it fix the problem?

    If not how do I do it.

    I don't know why PPV is not listed in All Programs, but why not start by
    removing Office 2007 if you're not going to use it. It may be causing the
    conflict.
