I got this question from one of our readers:

Thank you for a very good tutorial on how to insert Flash into a PowerPoint presentation. I followed your instructions and it worked great on my computer. Now I have to send this presentation to different clients for a review and the problem starts ... some can't see the animation (even though they downloaded Flash Player through IE etc...) I am sending them my PowerPoint presentation file along with SWF files that are inserted in one folder. I instruct to open the presentation through PowerPoint applications but they still cant see what I made. I could not find anywhere on your site that explains how to properly publish your presentation and share with other people. If I cant distribute what I did then all the work was very much useless, all the presentations are given to other people and different conference and they all have different PCs. I would love to know if you can help or guide me in the right direction.

Well, the answer is to not embed the Flash file at all as per instructions on this page. Make sure you don't embed the file in the PowerPoint presentation -- then place both the SWF file and the external text file in the same folder as the PowerPoint presentation and insert the Flash control thereafter.
