    no audio commentary. PPT was therefore of little use

    As the 1st commenter, (and this seems to apply to everything I have tried to access here this morning), I downloaded the ppt presentation, and I get a silent version of Phil’s or Mark’s slides, which are basicly just his reminder of the next item on the agenda. How do I get the video presentation with live SW demo? I just got un upgraded computer with the newest MS Suite, including ppt. Is there a setting on the new ppt I need? I am getting a flag that my video card is not optimum for ppt, but I declined to change, because it is optimized for SW.

      This presentation is only available as a .ppt. The 2008 SolidWorks World was not recorded, so there is no video recording to put on the webpage.

      Most of the other presentations should have video to accompany them, if you find one from SolidWorks 2009 or later, then there is a recording available. You can leave a note in the comments section of those pages and I will add a link to it, but you can always go to SolidWorks World Proceedings and search for it there.

    Some people may not realise that there are reasonably comprehensive “Speaker Notes” included with this presentation: one convenient way to see these is to “View/Normal” rather than the more usual “Slide Show” display

      Sorry, I should have this fixed shortly. It is an issue with my counting plug-in. The problem is now understood so I hope to correct it tonight.

      Update- This problem should now be fixed. If anyone still has problems, please comment.
