Bij Outlook Express zijn er soms problemen om de bijlagen te openen. Een artikel van Microsoft kan hieraan verhelpen. Zie onderaan.
After installing Windows XP Service Pack 2, when you open a .PPS file that came as a mail attachment in Outlook Express, you may see the Open / Cancel dialog box. When you select Open, the following error may be displayed:
This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel
Whereas the same file may open fine when saved to disk, and then viewed. This happens if the Open verb is missing for that file type.
This article is applicable for Windows XP SP2 systems, with PowerPoint Viewer 2003 or PowerPoint Viewer 2007 installed. For a Windows Vista version of this article, see article Unable to open .PPS attachments directly from Windows Mail in Windows Vista
Automated fix - Using the PPSFix utility
Download PPSFix.zip (~12 KB). Unzip the file and run the utility. Select the file types that you want to fix, and then click Fix. Note that you need to login as administrator in order to use this utility.
· Click Start, Run and type CONTROL FOLDERS
· In the Folder Options applet that opens, select the File Types tab
· Scroll down and locate the following entry:
PPS (Microsoft PowerPoint Slide Show)
· Click Advanced
· Click the New button
· Type Open in the the Action: text box
· In the Application used to perform action: field, type the following exactly:
For PowerPoint Viewer 2003:
"C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficePowerPoint Viewerpptview.exe" "%1"
For PowerPoint Viewer 2007:
"C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice12pptview.exe" "%1"
· Uncheck the Use DDE box
· Click OK, OK
· Close the Folder Options dialog
If the problem is seen for .PPT files, then make the above changes to the following file type:
PPT (Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation)
Same error occurs while opening an image file type?
If the same error occurs when opening image file attachments from Outlook Express, the underlying cause is still the same (missing Open verb). To resolve the problem, repair the image file associations.
