Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Suppose you needed to give a PowerPoint presentation but couldn't take your notebook with you. What would you do? You could use PPPCD, a free utility that transforms PowerPoint presentations into autorun files you can burn to disc and run on any Windows system. The program doesn't come with a configuration interface, so you'll need to carefully read the help file. Luckily, getting PPPCD to work is no harder than copying your PowerPoint files to a particular folder and renaming the main file. Since you can embed links to other documents in a PowerPoint presentation, you can create slide shows involving multiple files. From there, you'll need a third-party utility to burn the target folder to a disc. PPPCD is a niche product for sure, but a useful one for road warriors who need to travel light.

Developer's Description

PPPCD is a FREE system that will let you turn any PowerPoint compatible presentation into an autorun compact disc. Simply add your PowerPoint 97/2000 (or compatible) presentation files to the specified directory, rename the main file and burn the system to a CD. The CD will play your presentation when the user loads it into a CD player. If the user does not have PowerPoint, or the PowerPoint Viewer installed he, or she will prompted to install the viewer (included - does not install during PPPCD setup). PPPCD is compatible with ANY presentation that will run in PowerPoint 97/2000, including presentation created using 3rd party tools such as StarOffice. This system does not require an uninstaller and makes no changes to the user's system. Visual Basic 6.0 Run-Time is included in the package and MUST be included on each CD, but does not have to be installed on the machine for PPPCD to function.
