Running PowerPoint Show

Postby phil369 » 2007-05-09 17:37

I can get to the server fine, modify my PPT file, and then run the PPT Show. UltraVNC show everything even the automation - it's great. My issue is if I logout of that server - the PPT Show stops running, and the PPT application reverts back just as though I had pressed <ESC>.

Is there a setting that will allow me to disconnect the client from the server without that automated <ESC> and hence leave the PPT show running?

Thank you !

I, too, have the same issue.

We run a PPT on a server without keyboard and mouse, and control it by connecting via vnc. Upon disconnect the presentation stops.
I need a solution to keep the presentation running (maybe switch to another vnc server; but I would love to stay with ultravnc).

Greatings,

Is nobody out there with the same problem, or somebody with a solution, or maybe somebody does know that there is no solution for ultravnc...

Greatings,

Is there not a solution for this? It would make my life a lot easier if there was a work around for this.

Anyone?

What is the server set to do "when last client disconnects" ? This is in the admin properties dialog.

I have it set to "do nothing."

It interrupts the powerpoint when I connect too.

Anyone know if there's an alternative to VNC that will work for what I need?

I know this is an old topic but this was a match for my search so figured I would add in case it helps someone else.

What I was doing was double clicking the PPT presentation to open it and then pressing F5 to start the slide show. When I disconnected it would kick the window off of powerpoint and stop the slideshow.

So I used right click --> "Show" option on the PPT file and it stayed running after I disconnected. Hope that helps someone else.
