Microsoft® PowerPoint® 2010 is the most unique and cutting-edge presentation software available in the market today. With its vast new features, the users can experience amazing benefits, from video conversion and adding equations to other superior benefits. However, problems can occur when installing and using the software. If you are working on Windows® XP and you want to use Microsoft® PowerPoint® 2010, you might want to consider some aspects to ensure that the program works well on the OS. Here are some of the issues and the requirements to resolve the issues when using Microsoft® PowerPoint® 2010 on Windows® XP:
- Wrong version installed
- Missing Service Packs
- Specs of the PC too low
Wrong version installed
Do not use the 32-bit Microsoft® PowerPoint® 2010 on the 64-bit Windows® XP OS as it will not function well or it will cause the operating system to not perform well. Check your system and ensure that you are selecting the right version of Microsoft® PowerPoint® 2010 for your PC. Since this is the first time that Microsoft® Office has provided 2 versions of its software, you should not buy and install it in haste. Get the right one or you may face system inefficiency. The 32-bit version of the OS can only handle up to 4GB of memory, as compared to the much bigger 64-bit version of the OS.
Missing Service Packs
Microsoft® PowerPoint® 2010 works on Windows® XP if Service Pack 3 is installed. Service Pack 3 is a set of updates that make the OS updated to the newest technology and tools that are being used today. The reason behind this is that Microsoft® PowerPoint® 2010 requires some elements added to the Windows® XP operating system, since it is geared towards newer operating systems, like Windows Vista® and Windows® 7. If you have not installed any of the Service Packs as of yet, you will have to install all of them, from 1 to 3, before you can install and utilize Microsoft® PowerPoint® 2010.
Microsoft® PowerPoint® 2010 requires DirectX® 9, 1.5GB of available disk space, and 256MB RAM. Check your disk and system requirements before installing Microsoft® PowerPoint® 2010. These basic requirements help in the proper functioning of the program. If you don’t have them, it could make your usage of Microsoft® PowerPoint® 2010 sluggish. Follow these very simple tips and soon enough you will be making presentations like a pro and maximizing the capacity of Windows® XP using Microsoft® PowerPoint® 2010.
