Assuming you have PowerPoint or PowerPoint Viewer installed:

  1.     Download and save the attachment on the desktop.
  2.     Right click on the saved file.
  3.     Select: Open With from the pop-up menu.
  4.     Click: Choose [default] Program.
  5.     Select: PowerPoint or the PPViewer.
  6.     Check: Always use the selected program to open this kind of file.
  7.     Click OK.

If it still does not open directly from WLMail:

This really has nothing to do with Windows Live, it's a function of
the operating system.

choosing where to create 2nd (and subsequent) PST files?
Under my profile I have multiple email accounts -- one from my cable provider that is POP3, one from an online service that supports IMAP, and a hotmail account.

.MDA files to Access 2007
hello, does anyone know how to convert Access 2000 .MDA files to the Access 2007 equivalent? ive been able to convert .MDB files to .ACCDB, but not MDAs. im new to Access, and have been asked by my project manager to perform this task. (we are converting our legacy Access 2000 application to Access 2007). if if makes a difference, in 2000 we used a .MDW to help open the .MDA. then we compiled the MDA into a .MDE. this was then used as a reference by something else. that is what we would like to replicate here... but the first step seems to be getting the .MDA into the Access 2007 format. i ...
