PPT error message: Some controls on this presentation can't be activated..

I can export a PPT file from Xcelsius, save it to a shared drive, and open it fine on my laptop. However, if I add the file to InfoView and then myself or anyone else tries to open it, we get the dreaded "Some controls on this presentation can't be activated. They might not be registered on this computer." message. Also, any user I send the file to via email gets this message. Not sure why I can open the exported file from the original saved location, but it does not seem to allow opening from any other location (email, InfoView, etc).

I can open an exported .PDF file from anywhere just fine.

I have verified I have the latest version of Flash. I am running Xcelsius 2008 SP1, FP3 (latest and greatest), Office 2007. Any help would be appreciated.
