Powerpoint presentation remote issues

    I got a new presentation remote for powerpoint at our church. Everything works except the next and previous buttons. I figured out that the remote sends a page up and page down command with those buttons, but powerpoint uses right and left arrows. Is there something I can change in powerpoint to use the page up/down keys? I tried all the settings on the remote. I'm using powerpoint 2003 sp2 and windows xp pro sp2. The remote works perfectly on another computer with a newer version of powerpoint.

    Looks like your remote control is device driver is not installed yet/properly. Install it and see the result.

    There's no driver to install. It's plug and play. Apparently, different versions of Powerpoint use different commands for some things. The remote needs to match your version, but I haven't seen any that indicate what version they match. I guess they just program them for the "current" version. Way to go, Microsoft!
