Here is a short video tutorial illustrating how to download and use our templates for PowerPoint 2003 and older.
Our templates for older version of PowerPoint, like PowerPoint 2003, come in .ZIP archive files so there are a few extra steps to get them animate properly in PowerPoint 2003.
1. Download the template. It will download as a .zip file.
2. Extract the .ZIP file to a folder on your computer. I like to extract it to my Desktop, but you can extract it anywhere you want. Just remember where you saved it. To extract the .zip, I like to right click on top of the zip file and choose “Extract All” from the menu that appears.
3. Go to PowerPoint and then using the Open command in PowerPoint, browse to the folder you just extracted, and open the .ppt file.
4. Press F5 or View the SlideShow to see the animations move.
IMPORTANT: In the extracted folder, there is a .ppt file (the template) and one or move .wmv video files. These .wmv video files must remain in the same folder as your completed presentation. PowerPoint 2003 is linking to these files and if your presentation is not in the same folder as these video files, PowerPoint will not be able to find the files and the animations will not play.
