Are you on presenting alot? Ever had you Notebook with the precious presentation dying 5min before your slot? Have you ever wondered how bad a presentation looks when you created it using PowerPoint 2003 and the presentation computer has an ancient PowerPoint Version installed?
If this is the case, Autorun Presenter is the tool for you. Autorun Presenter is installed on a USB Stick. Once you plugin the USB Stick you will get the following menu.
If you choose "Presentation Menu" you'll get the main windows of Autorun Presenter. Please note that the UI uses larger font so that you can even read the names if you're standing meters away.
In addition you can fully control the menu using Page-up/Page-Down/F5 and Esc which is especially helpfull if you're remote control provides mappings for these keys (most do!). Please note the status line saying that "PowerPoint 2003 installed". If you plugin the USB Stick in a computer which does not have PowerPoint installed or where the PowerPoint version is older than 2003 it will automatically use the PowerPoint Viewer on the USB Stick.
To install you simply unzip the contents of the archive onto an USB Stick. You'll then need to put the PowerPoint 2003 Viewer files into the folder "pptviewer". The following files are needed:
Now you can simply add your presentations anywhere you like on the stick (I prefer to put them into a folder ... but that's up to you).
