Part II: Get Started with IExpress

  1. In Windows XP, go to your Start menu and choose Run.

    Windows Vista users can just go to their Start menu, and start typing as I show you next.

    In the resultant dialog box, type 'iexpress' without the quotes as shown in Figure 4. This will open the IExpress Wizard, one of Windows' undocumented secrets. Since IExpress is a series of wizard driven screens, each step below includes an actual screenshot.

  2. Select the Create new Self Extraction Directive file in IExpress, as shown in Figure 5. Click Next.

  3. IExpress wants to know how you would like to package your files (see Figure 6). Choose the first option that says Extract files and run an installation command. Click Next.

  4. Give your intended package a name, as shown in Figure 7 -- this could be anything descriptive you choose. Then, click Next.

  5. In this screen, IExpress needs to know if we require a confirmation prompt when the end-user activates the finished package -- since we want the finished standalone EXE to function as transparently as possible, we'll choose the No Prompt option, as shown in Figure 8. Click Next.

  6. You can choose to display a license agreement -- for this tutorial, I have opted not to display a license (see Figure 9) -- click Next.

  7. This screen (see Figure 10) is probably the most important within the entire IExpress Wizard sequence. Click the Add button and navigate to the folder created by PowerPoint 2007's Package to CD option -- refer to point 3. Add all the files within that folder and click Next.
