@harrymc Corbel handles them both ways, but the trouble is switching between them within PowerPoint.

Not sure why the "microsoft-powerpoint" tag was removed. I am interested in answers pertaining to any version of PowerPoint

Sorry, one shouldn't use SU for jokes. It just reminded me of an old sketch including the line (spoken by Gerald the Gorilla) "Wild!? I was absolutely livid"

Brilliant - this isn't quite the answer but it got me there. It turned out that if I ignored the large warning asking for the source directory and just click install it all worked. So you pointed me in the right direction, even if it was just-click-the-button rather than fix-your-DNS that was the key! Doh
