This is the way I've found to see .pps files in Puppy:

You need to have wine running. The version that worked better for me, in PUPPY 2.16, is the Wine-0.9.28_216-without-OpenGL.sfs file. There are many threads in this forum about how to install wine.

Download ppviewer.exe from Microsoft web site.

then you need to install ppviewer.exe using wine:
Code:

   wine /path/to/your/ppviewer.exe

Once installed, if you want to open .pps files with just one click, you could write a script like this: (note the Z: before "$@" . I've tested that without that Z: files are not found by pptview.exe) (Also check the path to your PPTVIEW.EXE file)
Code:

#!/bin/sh

wine "/root/WINDOWS-C-DRIVE/Program Files/Microsoft Office/PowerPoint Viewer/PPTVIEW.EXE" Z:"$@"


and save it in "my-applications" folder with any name.

Then, right click on any .pps file, and choose "Set run action".

Drag your script to the "Set run action" window.

Now you can click on any .pps file, it should work Smile

Seems that TonicPoint can do the job without need of wine.
