I am makeing a CD, and in this CD i have alot of .pdf & .ppt & .pps files

and i have one html page that i use as index to all the files,

most browsers these days have a built in pdf reader, so they don't prompt you to download the pdf locally before you can run it.

However the pps needs to be copied locally so that powerpoint can open up and run the show.

Two solutions... either save you power point as a "web page" in the file menu in powerpoint. OR bundle in the powerpoint plug in for the browser so the browser can run it directly
