This isn't a major issue but I'd like to understand what's happening and fix
it if possible.
Today I received an email with a .pps attachment. When trying to open it
from within WLM, I got the following error:
" This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this
action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an
association in the Default Programs control panel."
I do not have Microsoft Office, but I do have the document viewers for Word,
Excel and PowerPoint. None of these applications show in the Default
Programs control panel. I don't know why except that the really aren't
programs, but "Windows Photo Viewer" does show. How is that any different.
I was able to save the attachment to my desktop and open it there either by
double-clicking or by right-clicking and opening with Microsoft Office
PowerPoint Viewer. I also noticed that the check box to "always use the
selected program to open this kind of file" was checked so the proper file
association appears to be proper.
I did test ".doc and .xls" attachments by sending attachments to myself and
they open just fine from within WLM. I don't know what the .pps problem is.
Is there way to resolve this issue so that I can open this type of file
directly from within WLM.
