I realise this most likely isn't a mojPortal issue, but wondered if anyone had worked out how to successfully link to a Powerpoint slideshow .PPS or PPSX in Internet Explorer and have it display as a slideshow, as opposed to opening Powerpoint in edit mode.
After Googling, one fix was to edit the MIME settings for .pps as follows: application/vnd.ms-pps, which I have done. I have restarted IIS but when I click on my link to the .pps file, IE pops up with the options to Open, Save or Save As. When I click open, it opens Powerpoint in edit mode.
I have tested my link in Chrome and it opens as a slideshow. I have also tested uploading a .pps to the demo site and that also opens Powerpoint, instead of a slideshow with IE.
Is there something I can change in the Web Config or is this an MS issue? Does anyone have any other ideas?
PPTFaq.com has an article on this. I think you might want to try a different MIME type, as they have mentioned in their article.
If this PPS is going to be linked to on a public website, I wouldn't go about it this way because for PPS to work the PointPoint Viewer or PowerPoint must be installed. A lot of people don't have PowerPoint so unless your target audience is almost guaranteed to have it, you might want to look at creating a video from your PowerPoint or save it as HTML.
I did try the MIME as per that website link, but couldn't get it to work as advertised, I might have another look at it.
This is our intranet site so everyone has access to Powerpoint. Not a big fan of Powerpoint, so might try some other options.
Thanks for your ideas.
