Powerpoint 97 error message

  Jester2K 09:34 05 Mar 2004

My uncles PC is having problems opening Powerpoint files. When they try they get the message 'There was a problem loading the file specified when running the Accessibility Wizard'

Windows 98 and Office 97...

I can open the files OK on my PC (Win XP, Office XP)

Any ideas? Most things i can find are for ZIP files and suggest reinstalling WinZip.

I've suggested reinstalling Powerpoint (does the 97 version have a repair option? Been a few years since i used Office 97!!)

I have Powerpoint 97 (Part of Office 97) on several machines here and can`t find any reference to "accessibility Wizard".

No detect and repair though. Add/Remove programs insert Office 97 disk etc. If I find out any more I`ll post again.

Does he have any Add-ins loading? Look in Tools/Add-ins.
