Presentation Management 05: Why Is It Important Now

< Continued from Page 1

  1. In the next screen, opt to hide the installation program's window. Click the Next button.
  2. Show window
  3. Since we want the entire process to be as transparently invisible to the end-user as possible, we'll opt for the No message option. Click the Next button.
  4. Finished message
  5. You need to provide a path and name for your finished standalone EXE presentation now. Place it in the same folder as the presentation (or anywhere else) and give it a small name, preferably something that uses the old DOS 8.3 file naming convention.
  6. Within other options, check the box that hides the file extracting progress animation. Uncheck the other box that allows you to store files using long file names within the package, since we've suggested you already use the 8.3 file naming convention for all files in this tutorial. Click the Next button.
  7. Package Name and Options
  8. Choose the No restart option since we are not installing any system files. Click the Next button.
  9. Configure restart
  10. It's a good idea to save all the wizard settings as a Save Self Extraction Directive (SED) file. Choose a name and file location before you click the Next button.
  11. Save Self Extraction Directive
  12. There's nothing to change in this screen unless you want to go back and change any of the settings. Click the Next button.
  13. Create package
  14. Click the Finish button. Doing so will activate a DOS/command window that will compress all actual files down to almost 50% and create a standalone EXE that contains everything: the presentation(s), linked files and even the Viewer!
  15. Create package status
