TroubleshootingSlides which should contain interactive Flash elements will appear blank when viewed in presentation mode

This is due to an error with some versions of Adobe Flash Player 14. To resolve this issue you should install the latest version of Adobe Flash for Internet Explorer, which you can download from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/

Note :  You will need to install the latest version of Adobe Flash no matter what browser software you are using.

If you are using Windows 8 or 8.1 you will need to install Microsoft Update KB2982794 or the latest Flash update through the Windows Update service.

 

Microsoft PowerPoint shows a warning about disabled content when you open a presentation or when you click the Start button on an interactive flash element the presentation moves to the next slide instead of showing the animation

When starting the presentation show, click on the option to Enable Content for this Session and then click on OK.

Alternatively you can click on the Enable Content button on the warning bar when you first open the presentation file.

 

When opening a lesson presentation you will see a warning from Microsoft PowerPoint that states “Some controls on this presentation cannot be activated. They might not be registered on this computer.”

You will need to download and run the Adobe Flash Uninstaller from http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html

This will clear all remnants and possible conflicts with the Adobe Flash plugin installed on your system. Once you have run this tool and restarted the machine, please install the latest version of Adobe Flash for Internet Explorer, which you can download from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/

If, after performing these steps, you receive the same error open the presentation and within PowerPoint click on the File Menu Tab and select Save As. Within the dialog box click Save.

When asked if you would like to replace the current file select Yes.

Close PowerPoint and reopen the presentation, you should no longer receive the error message. 

 

You receive a message which states that you do not have a program installed that can open ppt files, even though you have PowerPoint installed

This can occur when there is a problem with the installation of MS Office where the program does not correctly associate itself with .ppt files. Please perform a repair install of Office which should resolve the issue.

 

Embedded YouTube Videos will not play

When starting the presentation show, click on the option to Enable Embedded Content for this Session and then click on OK.

Alternatively you can click on the Enable Content button on the warning bar when you first open the presentation file.

 

Live Web Content slides are blank

Make sure you have installed the latest version of the LiveWeb Addin from http://skp.mvps.org/liveweb.htm
