I am trying to open a pdf file embedded in a PowerPoint presentation while in presentation mode.
Theoretically, I should be able to click on the embedded object and have it open in its proper application.
When I try to open a pdf file, AcroRd32 opens, briefly displays the document, and then closes immediately.
This happens in both versions Acrobat Reader 9 and X. The problem didn't exist when using Office 2003, but now exists in Office 2007.
I can open the document when in editing mode - just not in presentation mode.
I have built an Add-In for PowerPoint.
My VB code for opening the document is:
myshape = applicationObject.ActiveWindow.Selection.SlideRange.Shapes.AddOLEObje ct( _
FileName:=vrtSelectedItem, Link:=MsoTriState.msoFalse, _
Left:=22.5, Top:=127, Width:=675.8, Height:=377)
.Action = Powerpoint.PpActionType.ppActionOLEVerb
.ActionVerb = "Open"
Does anybody know how to fix this problem, or have a work-around for it?
