I only have the .key presentation file and cannot ask the author to export it to ppt nor do I have an Apple computer available.

Do you have access to an IWork account? (I deleted my answer as I misread your question). –  slotishtype Jul 18 '11 at 10:20

Use http://www.zamzar.com/ to convert the .key to PDF online. Also, the .key is a zip archive: if you unzip you may be able to see a thumbnail for each slide.

Worked for me and I don't even have a mac! –  Fabian Fernandez Aug 23 '13 at 0:42

Since it is a proprietary format, you will need to use KeyNote to open it.

You obviously can't export the file as anything since you would need to open it first in order to export it ;-)

I know that Keynote files can be "played" in QuickTime on a Mac, but I don't know how feasible that is in Windows. Worth a try.

To play keynote files in Quicktime on windows you would first need to export them to a .mov file apparently –  nickvane Jul 18 '11 at 10:10

There is now a keynote viewer for the browser using icloud. If you have a Apple device, you can make an icloud account, and upload the file to your account. then go to icloud's website and play it on any browser.
