The church laptop is broken and has to be replaced. This poor old computer used to work so well; it had Win XP, Powerpoint 2003, plus of course OpenLP and OpenLP projected our Microsoft powerpoints so very well during services.
The replacement laptop will be running Win8 (64 bit) and, if possible, I am keen to still project Microsoft Powerpoints from within OpenLP. What is the current state of play with OpenLP and Powerpoint and what is recommended ... should I purchase Office 2013 or should I use one of the free Powerpoint Viewers? Which would be the most reliable way of projecting Microsoft powerpoints from within OpenLP?
Alternatively, would it be better to press “D” in OpenLP “D”, to display the desktop, then run Powerpoint from outside OpenLP?
Any hints and tips on this matter would be gratefully received.
