I am unable to get this to work in SharePoint 2007 MOSS with a PowerPoint 2007 slide show. Has this worked for anyone? Can you relay the steps you took? It seems very straight forward but the slide show opens outside of the page. Any help would be appreciated.Kerry

This is a very good question. I'm also trying to find outa straight forward way to achieve this.I've a workaround solution for this. This will work only if you have plain-vannilla slides (without animation). The Approach is as follows :-Save the(ppt/pptx) as images (jpeg.gif)Host them on to Picure Library.Go Actions --> SlideShow in picture library.This will enable you render theslide-show, without having to open in power pointSundar Narasiman

Saving the PPT file as a PDF seems to be the simplest and most elegant work around I've found. I haven't been successful making the registry changes.

You can save the Powerpoint as an html file on the sharepoint site. (might be easier to save the htm version locally, then upload it to a document library if that makes better sense. Then either use a Page Viewer Web Part to display it, or just provide a link to the htm file on one of the pages you already have. The Publish feature (a button that you see while saving) gives you some choices to govern how your presentation will look as a web page, such as providing navigation controls, etc. Hope it helps!

Yeah that worked great in 2007 but is no longer available in 2010. Broadcasting the show has it's own limitations and I don't see any other options to get this to work. We have SharePoint Foundation Server 2010 and I am using PowerPoint 2010 and can no longer embed a powerpoint show for employees to browse on our company intranet. I've been trying for days and my only solution so far is to find someone with 2007 to save it as a webpage FOR me. Sigh... Please direct me to some easier way to make this happen

Try this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/980553 it doesn't allow you to change any of the options for display within your site, but it will let you convert the file to a single webpage for now.
