Controlling PowerPoint From Within Runtime Revolution

Greetings All,

I am trying to write a script that will allow the user to open and  
show a powerpoint presentation and then give control back to  
revolution when finished.  I am currently using the launch command,  
but don't like seeing all the PowerPoint startup items.  The  
presentation runs OK, but when it is done, it closes the presentation  
and shows the regular PowerPoint development windows. My end users do  
NOT want to convert their presentation to a batch of jpegs.  They  
would prefer just showing the PP presentation and then come right  
back to their runtime app.

Can this be done?
