oh, u didnt mentioned that earlier taht your friend copied a folder out of his installation.

well all MS products share some common files. and only copying the folder to other system doesnt means that your powerpoint will run.

and open source will some how meet your needs, but dont consider them as advanced as the Ms Office 2003.

for the time being, i'll only suggest that you contact your frind with the CD, and install the MS Office temporarily, as it might not get activated on the internet. only folder will not work well.

and while u install, you can mention there to install the powerpoint only.
