    Default Help with Java and Microsoft Powerpoint?

    Hi! I'm quite an amateur in Java.

    But I have this project specification (from a client) which asks for a GUI which can open powerpoint files. I have all the powerpoint files, but I'm not sure how to open them through a java GUI (actually made by NetBeans)

    Think of it like a windows mediaplayer but for powerpoint files.

    Is this actually possible?

    In my opinion Java may not the best tool for the task. I'd lean towards a Windows-specific scripting tool such as WinBatch or AutoIt
