PowerPoint Pack and Go default folder

PowerPoint Pack and Go default folder

(OP)
When unpacking a presentation the default folder to unpack into is c:\temp. Is there any way to change the default to a folder that would be created if not already there?

RE: PowerPoint Pack and Go default folder

please expound of your method of 'unpacking', one way I can think of, though, is to manually copy the c:\temp\whatever folder that it gets unpacked into to a folder in a more convenient place.

RE: PowerPoint Pack and Go default folder

(OP)
When using Pack & Go, a presentation is packaged onto disks (in my case 3 disks). These can be brought to another machine that does not have PowerPoint on it, unpacked onto that machine, and the user can view the presentation. When packing, PowerPoint creates a file called Pngsetup that will automatically run the unpacking. It is during this unpacking that it will automatically unpack into c:\temp (or give the option of changing the folder to unpack into at that time). I would like to set the default folder myself to something such as c:\MyCompany, so that it will create that folder and unpack into it without the user having to type it. Any ideas would be appreciated.

RE: PowerPoint Pack and Go default folder

Hmmmm could you post a copy of all the NAMES of the files that it creates on all three disks....beleive it or not; that would really help.
