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?

Guessing big time here..need more info from you mate.

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:

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
