You can pack your presentation to a floppy disk, hard drive or directly to another computer on your network.
When you want to run a presentation on another computer, use the Pack and Go Wizard to put all the required files into one file and copy the file to a disk or network location.
You then unpackage the file onto the destination computer or network and run the presentation.
