I have a new Windows 8.1 laptop. Bought a week ago.
Have installed OpenLP on it - all OK so far. Powerpoint plugin activated etc.
Powerpoint is a problem.
Installed Powerpoint viewer 2007. It installed, it was recognised by OpenLP, but filed to run, either as a stand-alone programme, or inside OpenLP. Importing presentations to OpenLP resulted in a cross by the presentation, and an error message that the presentation was not complete.
As this failed, I uninstalled Viewer 2007, and installed a later version from here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=13
which took me here:
This installed fine, and ran on its own OK. Was also recognised by OpenLP. But importing a Presentation resulted in a locked up OpenLP.
I have a copy of Office 365 on the laptop, which I am happy to buy if it will solve the problem, but I assume I need an Internet connection to make it work. Our building does not have an internet connection
So I failed again.
Has anyone got any ideas at all. This is driving me mad!
Thank you in advance.
