Someone just sent me a production done as a Corel Presentations file. I don't have that on board my machine, and I have Googled for a viewer ... but can't seem to find one. PowerPoint has free viewers (don't work on Corel Presentations) ... Corel's website doesn't show any viewers. Does anyone know where I can get a viewer for this?

found this

Have your friend do this with the file (It is called Show on the Go) for anyone who doesn't have Perfect Office installed.
Quote:
To use Show On The Go™
1. Click File, Show On The Go
2. Click Create. Corel Presentations creates a .EXE file, which can be copied onto a portable storage medium such as a floppy disk.


It can probably be zipped and emailed.

If the sender uses WordPerfect Office 12, then "Show on the Go" should be inbuilt into it (or they can save as a Powerpoint file):

- How to share Presentations 12 slide shows
Quote:
Saving in Microsoft® PowerPoint® format

If your client is a Microsoft® PowerPoint® user, you can save your slide show to the PowerPoint format.

1. Open the slide show in Presentations 12.
2. From the Compatibility toolbar , click the Save as Microsoft PowerPoint button .
3. In the Save As dialog box, type a name for your slide show in the File name box, and click Save.

Alternatively, you can choose Save As from the File menu. In the Save As dialog box, choose MS PowerPoint 97/2000/2002/2003 from the File type list box. In the File name box, type a name for your slide show, and click Save.

Creating a Show on the Go

Show on the Go is another feature designed to help you share your work with others. Creating a Show on the Go produces a self-executing version of your Presentations slide show that is playable on any computer using the Windows® operating system, even if the computer doesn't have Presentations installed.

1. Open the slide show in Presentations 12.
2. From the File menu, choose Show on the Go.
3. In the Show on the Go dialog box, click Create.

That would work ... if ... Unfortunately the presentation came from a third party .... Well, I guess we shall see what we can see. Maybe someone around has Word Perfect office.

Thanks for your help and advice.

Allo alstewart Smile

There is a viewer (Quick View Plus V9) that should show your presentation. Unfortunately, it's about $46 I think, although there's a 30-day trial available from here.

Is the extension on the presentation cmx, shw, or is it something else? There are so many different extensions mentioned that it makes searching difficult because I have no idea what version of WordPerfect Office was used to create the Presentation file.
Have you tried right-clicking the file and selecting open with and choosing Power Point?

Actually it's a pqf file. ... PowerPoint doesn't seem to recognize it. But maybe my powerpoint is too old ... I'll get a newer version of the PP viewer and try again.

PowerPoint won't look at it.

Here's a page with three free viewers on it
http://www.brothersoft.com/downloads/corel-viewer.html
Let me know if any of them work.

I'm off to see what a pqf file is!

Here's a pqf viewer

That's interesting ... I assumed the pqf file was Corel Presentations because that's what a website told me when I googled for info. Well ... I'll see what that viewer does with this. Should be interesting, seeing the file is not part of email, and the pqf viewer has different versions for different email clients.

---

Well, tried to install that pqf viewer ... that doesn't look like what I am looking for ... it's an adobe thing for "translating" http email on webmail setups.

So I'll look at the others you mentioned.
