Don't ask why. I'm in a weird situation. I need to create a file that seems to be a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation but does not work. The file must look like a file that could be created with PowerPoint so the person that sees it does not understand that it's fake and when he tries to open the file , something does not work and the presentation does not run. Any help would be greatly appreciated cause my situation is very important for me.
P.S. I use Windows 7 but I could have access to other versions of Windows if needed and the file that will be created will be attempted to run in Windows XP. (so you understand that it must NOT run in XP) Also i think i should mention that I'll be creating the file using Microsoft Office 2007 edition and the file will be run by a previous version of that program. (I think 2003 but I'm not sure...).
Thanks in advance your your answers.

Let me take a wild stab....
..you slacked off creating a project for class, ran out of time, and needed an icon for a "project file", that looked like a legitimate file, that "mysteriously" doesn't work...to give you some time to "figure out the problem" (A.K.A. finish your project and finally turn it in...)

Im having a feeling some one is going on the naughty step
Well, if your in a situation like this, I would recommend making a file with the powerpoint ext at the end and then replacing the icon with powerpoint.
This is as much as I am willing to help you.
Anything that happens is as of your own responsibility.

Umm, no offence, but this is quite the weird question if you ask me but here's my advice. Create a powerpoint file, but open it in Notepad and just type anything, anywhere and save it. Now when you try and open that file, it should come up as corrupted because you inserted random characters that broke the code and now that computer won't be able to read it properly..
