Optimizer system requirements
PPTools Optimizer is discontinued
As of November 1, 2011, PPTools discontinued the PPTools Optimizer add-in for PowerPoint.
Please see the Optimizer home page for more information and other options.
The Optimizer site and the All About Optimizer pages will remain here to assist our existing Optimizer customers.
If your computer can handle the PowerPoint files you typically work with, it will work very well with Optimizer.
Office/PowerPoint and Windows versions
Optimizer is an add-in for Windows PowerPoint. It works with these versions of PowerPoint:
- PowerPoint 2000
- PowerPoint 2002 (aka XP)
- PowerPoint 2003
- PowerPoint 2007
- PowerPoint 2010 32-bit
Optimizer will NOT work in:
- PowerPoint 2010 64-bit
- Office 2010 Click-To-Run
- PowerPoint 97
- Any of the supported PowerPoint versions listed above running in Windows under Parallels/Fusion/Bootcamp on MacOS X.
- And should work under any of the supported versions of PowerPoint listed above running in Windows under an emulator or virtual machine in any operating system.
- In short, if your system can run any of the supported Windows PowerPoint versions listed above, Optimizer should work as well.
Optimizer is compatible with Windows 98 through Windows 7. It has not been tested with, and may not be compatible with 64-bit versions of Windows or Office 2010/64-bit.
The free Optimizer demo will allow you to test thoroughly for yourself. If the demo works well for you, so will the purchased, fully registered version.
When you install Optimizer in PowerPoint 2007 or 2010, you'll see a new "Add-ins" tab on the Office ribbon and on it, Menu Commands and Custom Toolbars groups instead of the PPTools menu bar item and Optimizer toolbar that would appear in PowerPoint 2003 and previous. The functions are the same in either case.[Previous] [Home] [Next]
