SETUP /N Error: Cannot Open DEFAULT.PPT, File in Use PSS ID Number: Q106507 Article last modified on 11-23-1994 PSS database name: POWERPT

3.00 WINDOWS

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft PowerPoint for Windows, version 3.0

SUMMARY

The following message is generated when you use the PowerPoint workstation Setup command SETUP /N if you are trying to install your user files onto the same network directory where you installed PowerPoint shared files doing the shared network administrative installation of PowerPoint:

Cannot open the file name {path}.ppt The file is in use by another application.

MORE INFORMATION

When you use SETUP /N, PowerPoint asks you where you want to install the user files. On some networks PowerPoint suggests the same directory that the shared PowerPoint files are stored. This will not work because the Setup program will then be trying to write file to the same directory from which it is copying files. You must install the user files to a different directory.
