Ok, so this is in essence trying to get 2010 apps to open on the client side? Ok, one thing to be aware of though is if your client has 2010 office installed, then 2010 applications would open dependent on them being the client-side default program. What
if the particular workstation that opens this app doesn't have PowerPoint 2010 but has the 2007 or 2003 version with the conversion tool? If you direct their system to open only the 2010 version of office programs in that case, I would think your document
would throw some error in that case. By definition, a workstation should have only one version of MSOffice though it can have multiple ones installed. I generally when building systems avoid doing that as it can cause DLL conflicts in some cases. Also, its
another thing to worry about patching and introduces complexity into the environment.
