PPTPlex – Presentations on a Canvas

pptPlex is a plug-in that explores an alternate method for presenting a PowerPoint slide deck. Using pptPlex, you can present your slides as a tour through a zoom able canvas instead of a series of linear slides.

However, once I had downloaded and installed it, it failed to load with an error. Running windows XP SP3, MS Office 2007, when I open PPT I didn’t see any ribbons or options for Plex. Going into Powerpoint Options / Addins, Plex is listed, so I click on Go for managing COM Add-Ins. I get a dialogue showing Plex is disabled with the message: Location: mscoree.dll Load Behaviour: Not loaded. A run-time error occurred during the loading of the COM Add-In.

After a while investigating, I found that getting the Primary Interop Assembly for Office 2007 from Microsoft at this link here, would solve the problem.

PPTplex is really a must have  add-in for teachers and alike because it add some originality even if your slides are dull 🙂
