Opening emails with Powerpoint

  Jazzyboo 18:50 16 Jun 2009

Whenever I receive a message with a pps attached I keep getting the following message and cannot open them.

"This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Associations panel". I then have to click ok just to get rid of the above message. I have powerpoint and that works fine. Any ideas please.

If XP go to Control Panel - Folder Options - File Types tab - scroll down to .PPS extension and below it should say Opens with Microsoft Powerpoint for Windows. If not click Change button, find Powerpoint and tick box Always Open the Selected program with.... click OK.
