Hi Ramesh,

I couldn't open now a .pps file received on email.
The warning says "No file type associated.... Create one...."
However when the file is saved in the Documents, it can be opened from
there.
Similarly with the .pdf files.

All I could find is this:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\pdf_auto_file\shell\Read\command



No luck finding this second one:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.<ProgID>

SJB,

You need to install PowerPoint Viewer 2003 (or 97) from Microsoft downloads
site. This enables you open the .PPS files from OE.

OTOH, there is a known issue with PPV2003 and Windows XP SP2. If you
encounter a problem with these two combinations, use the advice here to
resolve the problem.:

Unable to open .PPS attachments directly from Outlook Express?:
