I want to use a standalone PC to run some PowerPoint presentation countinously. I have installed PowerPoint Viewer 2010 on it as well as the ppsx presentation file.

But the viewer plays the file once and finishes with the message like "End of slideshow, press a key to end".

Any ideas how to make PPSX presentation to loop in PowerPoint Viewer 2010?

PS.When using the /F switch it opens in fullscreen mode, but still not repeating.

There is a bugfix in PowerPoint Viewer 2010 Service Pack 1 to solve this. SP1 can be downloaded from – user417482 Feb 10 '15 at 14:02

Go to set up slide show

office 2007- You shall find the option under the Slide Show tab.

in the set up box, there is a button titled Set Up Slide Show

then click the Loop continuously till esc

then save it as whatever file. It should loop continuously.

I believe that in older versions, its under Slide Show, next to File Edit etc. I forgot what you call that part.

The presentation is looped already and it works as desired in PowerPoint. Unfortunately, in the PPT Viewer doesn't :/ – twk Aug 3 '10 at 13:55
