Although Monitors AnyWhere is able to run PowerPoint files, please note that the PPT viewer is no longer supported by Microsoft. For best result, it is recommended to export PPT slides as JPEG, and use the following documentation here.
The Native PowerPoint Launcher allows you to run different slide shows on different monitors from one computer, in full screen mode, in any resolution and orientation settings. You can run the same PowerPoint presentation on all screens or a different presentation on each screen.
In the following guide we will demonstrate how to open different PowerPoint presentations on each display screen, using the new feature in Monitors Anywhere.
We encourage you to read a case study on one of our customer’s installations who used our solution to run different slideshows from a single PC on six display screens.
PowerPoint Viewer is a mandatory component for Monitors AnyWhere to be able to run multiple presentations on your digital sigange TV screens.
Since the release of Monitors AnyWhere v184.108.40.206 , the installation of PowerPoint Viewer is done at the first stages of the setup.
You can either upgrade to the most recent version or install PowerPoint Viewer manually by following the steps below:
Install PowerPoint Viewer 2010 from the following link:

Make sure that your presentation is set with the following configurations:
In PowerPoint please go to Slide Show tab and select
“Setup Slide Show”
– Under Show type > Select – Presented by a speaker (Full screen)
– Under Show options > Select – Loop continuously until ‘Esc’
In order to set the presentation to run in full screen you’ll need to configure it with the right screen size. If you have a wide screen you’ll need to set the screen size to 16:9 configuration and if you have square screen you’ll need to set it to 4:3.
