    I've installed Office 2003 Academic version on a client's computer and I'm having problems with Powerpoint.

    The problem is when you have more than one slide and you go to View Show -- the first slide displays, but when you click to the second, an error appears explaning Powerpoint can't connect to a hyperlink and ^0 is displayed. This error even appears if both slides are blank and there are no hyperlinks present. I've tried reinstalling, repairing the installation, updating it via Office update and nada. I'm stumped. :confused: Any clues?

    Thanks for any insight.

    Have your tried disabling the 'Customer Feedback Options' in the Office Suite? Maybe that is causing the error?

    Re:

    The error says:

    Powerpoint couldn't create a hyperlink to ^0.

    That's what the popup error says -- no idea what it means...

    Edit: I figured it out -- a VERY obscure error -- I had to replace the hlink.dll file to a more updated version and it works fine. /shrug! :rolleyes:
