    PowerPoint Files on Intranet Site

    I have an intranet site on which there are links to PowerPoint files. All users have PowerPoint on their computers and all use IE as their browser.

    When a user clicks a ppt link, they get prompted to Open, Save, or Cancel.

    If they select Open, IE displays the file in Slide show mode.

    Does anyone know of a way, programmatically, to force IE to open the file in PowerPoint?

    copy C:\Program Files\ipUnplugged\wininst\rsenv.bat C:\Program Files\ipUnplugged\wininst\rs.bat

    Hmm... batch files on a C drive somewhere???? Are you serious???
    If (by chance) this is legitimate, what, exactly would these batch files do for me?

    I apologize for that, I was working and at the same time copying the url but it seems that the copy command was not effective:

    The link is:
