    I am having a problem opening a .ppt file for my wife. I downloaded and installed the viewer from here at microsoft. It said the installation was completed successfully, but when I try to open the attachment that she sent to my email account, I get an error message saying: This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel.

    I do not know what I need to do to create an association in the Folder Options control panel.

    Any ideas??

    Nope, not an option, Allan. I did figure out what the problem was though. The magic box has an issue opening the .ppt file out of Outlook Distress, so I saved it to My Documents and it opened fine. When opening from My Documents by right clicking, the option does exist to open with PowerPoint, which it does well. Unfortunately this oprion doesn't exist in Outlook Distress. I did manage to find a fix for the problem here. Now it works as it should and can be opened directly from Outlook Distress. What a PITA.....
