PowerShow Launcher

The PowerShow Launcher utility enables you to launch single shows with PowerShow support from command-line. This utility named LaunchPowerShow.exe is available in the folder that was specified while installing PowerShow. This is usually C:\Program Files\OfficeOne\PowerShow\.

Usage

The PowerShow Launcher accepts the following syntax:

LaunchPowerShow "filename.ppt" [ -m<from_monitor> ] [ -c<monitor_count> ] [-s] [-e]
LaunchPowerShow "filename.pss" [-s] [-e]
LaunchPowerShow "filename.pss" -e
LaunchPowerShow -e

where,

-m Start the show from this monitor
-c Span show across these many monitors
-e Exit a running PowerShow Session
-s Show PowerShow Session Settings dialogbox

By default, PowerShow Launcher assumes the show to start on the primary monitor and spans the show across one monitor. Also, by default, it launches the PowerShow session directly without any further intervention.

In the first syntax, PowerShow Launcher loads the specified presentation file and starts PowerShow Session with that presentation file. This syntax should be used when you want to run a single slide show through PowerShow. For multiple slide shows, you need to use the second syntax that requires the settings saved in PowerShow Session Settings file.

In the second syntax, the PowerShow Launcher loads the saved PowerShow Session Settings from the specified filename.

Related tip: Start PowerPoint session as soon as PC starts.
