View Full Version : opening PowerPoint from a web page?

Apr 23rd, 2007, 09:35 PM
I'm a javascript novice, so I'm hoping this is easy. I have a single html page with links to several PowerPoint files. The whole package will be delivered on a CD, not web. I need users to click the link and open the PPT in PowerPoint rather than in the PPT viewer through the browser. Everyone who views this presentation WILL have PowerPoint on their systems, so that's not a worry.

I saw a comment elsewhere that said unless the user quits PowerPoint after viewing each presentation, all subsequent presentations open BEHIND the web browser? I would like confirmation of that and the javascript to make it function. If it it not possible, I need to know.

This needs to work in Windows XP.
