I get the following error when I run from the command line

"ConvertPPT is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."

IMPORTANT: To use the command line successfully the operating system will need to know where exactly the application is located. Otherwise, you'll see the following error:

"ConvertPPT.EXE" is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."

We suggest you do one of the following:

A)    Set the path in your operating system’s environment variables to the installation location of ConvertPPT.EXE. See your operating system’s help for setting the path.

B)    Create a batch file (a text file whose file name ends in .bat) that uses the fully qualified path of ConvertPPT.EXE.

For example the following is a typical batch file:

"C:\Program Files\Softinterface, Inc\Convert PowerPoint\ConvertPPT.EXE" /J "C:\MyJobs\SlideConversions.SII"
