Are you getting any error whe PPT freezes?
Please try uninstalling both, 32 and 64 bit Presenter, and then install 32 bit Presenter after a restart.

No errors are returned, it just hangs. I tried the uninstall of both and the reinstall and the result is the same, it hangs. I didn't delete the downloaded zip files, I will try that now, uninstall and do a fresh download. Fingers crossed....!! Thanks!
Thanks - I ran through the cleaner tool, rebooted, and re-installed and the same thing happens, anytime I select something from the Presenter ribbon PPT freezes and hangs. No error message is returned. Any other suggestions? This is so discouraging, as I really feel Presenter 9 along with Captivate are the right tools for me to use for my projects, and I want to purchase both.
Well, I think I have a workaround. I let it spin for 5 mins 15 seconds and finally this window popped up on my other monitor:
Once I clicked Continue Trial it allowed me to work within the Presenter ribbon.
I find it a little odd that it takes 5+ mins for that window to load, but after that the few clicks I've done, the performance is acceptable. 5 mins for that dialog is not!! Going to make the evaluation period for this a bit of a pain if that keeps happening everytime (so far it's happened twice) but I'll muddle through for now.
Thanks for you help.
Good to hear that.
Until, you click on start trial button on first launch, this dialogs blocks any action, that's why it was freezing.
This window will pop up on first click of any button on the Presenter Ribbon at every new launch of Powerpoint, as you are in trial mode, but after first launch you may minimize it and continue your work.
Launching 5 minutes after the button click is too long period. This may be performance related issue. Please close any uneccesary application, when using Presenter. Normally, it launches within 1-2 seconds after any button click.

Yes please try the edit link on your last post. You should see an option at the bottom to attach files.
Hi - can we revisit this? I now have a fully licensed version and the problem remains. Clicking anywhere on the Presenter ribbon causes a delay of 5 minutes before any action is returned upon first opening PowerPoint. How can I get these log files to you to troubleshoot?
