Frequently Asked Questions
Can I create live content slides on one computer and transfer them to another?
Yes, as long as the destination computer has this same (older) PowerPoint for Windows Add-In installed.
What is the Add-in doing?
Our PowerPoint for Windows Add-in runs a macro, which creates a slide with a browser control object. The browser control object uses ActiveX to display a projector-optimized webpage that runs off of our server.
Will these slides work on a Mac?
No, slides embedded with the Windows PowerPoint Add-in will not work on Mac computers. We have a separate installation process for Mac users that produces the same output but requires different software.
