Update (August 1, 2007): We now support Vista & PowerPoint 2007. Learn more.
Microsoft just released to manufacturing (RTM) Office 2007, which includes PowerPoint 2007 and is expected to be available to the general public at the end of January 2007.
How does this release impact Articulate Presenter?
The short answer is that the Articulate Presenter System Requirements have not changed. We still recommend that you use — and will only support — PowerPoint 2000, PowerPoint 2002 (PowerPoint XP), or PowerPoint 2003.
We expect to support PowerPoint 2007 and Vista no later than the end of Q1 2007, following the January 2007 general public release date of Office 2007.
We’re a fast-paced software company and pride ourselves at being on the cutting edge of technology, and the release of Office 2007 doesn’t change that. Our product development team has been hard at work for months already thoroughly testing the compatibility of Articulate Presenter with beta releases of Office 2007.
We will do our best to communicate with all of you — here on the Word of Mouth Blog, in our Community Forums, and via email update notifications to all licensees — when we do officially begin supporting Office 2007.
In the meantime, using Presenter with PowerPoint 2007 or Vista is not recommended, but you may be able to use it to some degree. We’ve heard reports of varying success. If you do decide to use Presenter in PowerPoint 2007, look for it under the new Add-Ins tab of the Ribbon.
