I installed the PowerPoint 07 viewer so I can view .pps files that people
send to me. I use Microsoft Mail in Windows Vista. Everytime I try to open
up a .pps attachment I get the following error:
This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this
action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel.
I can open the file only if I save it and open it from that saved location.
I would rather not save these files. Can't I just double click to launch it
from within Mail?
