            leo_leo,

            thanks for your quick reply.


            there should be a .DLL file

            but in my case, although Presenter is installed
            it is not in the COM add-in dialog box

            can somebody tell me what .DLL and where tot find it

                sorry for reacting a little later

                like you suggested i did the following

                Click PowerPoint Office Button > PowerPoint Options > Add-ins.
                Click the Manage menu, select COM Add-ins, and then click Go.
                In the COM Add-ins dialog box,check "Adobe Presenter PowerPoint COM Addin " => here my screen simply gives the following text in dutch -> COM ADD-ins

                there is no list
                so i do add

                i can find in my list the menulauncher.dll
                i select it and i Click OK.

                i receive the COM ADD-ins - screen again

                there is no list nor item in it

                and so presenter can not be launched

                  Did you try uninstalling Presenter and then installing it again ?

                    yes,

                    i unstalled acrobat and presenter
                    i even migrated this weekend from cs2 to cs3 - since i only had acrobat 7 on this machine

                    the final result = 0
                    frustrating...

                      I'm experiencing the same problem running under Vista Ultimate SP1. I've gone in and tried to manually add the menulauncher.dll, install/uninstall/reinstall with same results.

                        This may work for your situation,

                        (1) While presenter is still installed , copy menulauncher.dll from the the installed program folder for presenter , then past it into the default folder for PowerPoint add-ins...
                        (2) Open PowerPoint as administrator, then navigate to its COM add-ins menu, when you click add, then it should open the default folder for PowerPoint add-ins with the menulauncher.dll file you copied in it. click the file to add it. should populate as a add-on. close PowerPoint.
                        (3) uninstall presenter. restart computer. reinstall presenter. after install it should launch PowerPoint to show the presenter tutorial (getting started file). The presenter tab should now be visible
                        hope this helps, it was performed with vista premium

                          (4) also, after you see the presenter tab .... Go to the COM add-ins and then have it point to the menulauncher.dll that is located in the program folder for presenter by clicking add then navigating to that folder (this would allow presenter to function properly).

                            I have followed all these instructions several times to no avail. I am on Vista Ultimate 64bit running Office 2007. I have tried every bullet point in the suggestions. Has anyone got presenter to work on 64Bit Vista?

                            thanks.
