Downloads of RUG Meeting Presentations

System Files You May Need:

The files available for download are either in compressed form (.zip files, to minimize the size and download time), or are MS Word documents (.doc or .docx files), MS PowerPoint files (.ppt or .pptx or .pps files), WordPerfect files (.wpd), Adobe PDF files (.pdf), MP3 audio files (.mp3), MP4 video files (.mp4), or web files. Note that MS Word documents since 2007 default to .docx files and MS PowerPoint files default to .pptx files.

After you download a Microsoft Word or Microsoft PowerPoint file (and possibly unzip it), you may need special software to view or use it.

For Reading MS PowerPoint Files:

To read PowerPoint .pptx files (as well as the older .ppt files), you may download the PowerPointViewer.exe setup program (26.4 MBytes) from our website.

  1. After you download the file, save it to your hard disk.
  2. Double-click the PowerPointView setup program file (PowerPointViewer.exe) on your hard disk to start the setup program.
  3. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the installation.

For Reading MS Word Files:

To read MS Word .docx files (as well as the older .doc files), you may download both the Word Viewer setup program (25.0 MBytes) and FileFormatConverters setup program (37.9 MBytes) — the compatibility pack needed by Word Viewer — and then follow these instructions:

  1. After you download the file, save it to your hard disk.
  2. Double-click the Word Viewer setup program file (wordview_en-us.exe) on your hard disk to start the Setup program.
  3. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the installation.
  4. Install the Compatibility Pack (FileFormatConverters.exe).
    1. After you download the file, save it to your hard disk.
    2. Double-click the FileFormatConverters setup program file (FileFormatConverters.exe) on your hard disk to start the setup program.
    3. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the installation.

For .zip Files:

For .zip files, after downloading, you must "unzip" them. To do this you may use any of several unzipping programs. If you need one, you can download either of two free programs:

Zip Reader for Windows (free) Download it!
WINZIP (free for 21-day trial period) Download it!

Follow the directions on the corresponding site to download and install it.

Downloading The Files:

Only files greater than 1.0 MBytes have their sizes included below. Entries indicated by are .zip files which contain the types of files indicated by the icon after the slash; the size is thus the size of the .zip file. All files are copyrighted by the authors as of the date presented, unless otherwise indicated.

The asterisk (*) in front of the date indicates those files that are freely available to everyone who visits our website; otherwise, files are available only to RUG members.

MP4 files include both screen video and audio capture.

If you click on the link and the file does not download properly, an alternate way of obtaining that file is:

  1. Right-click on the link,
  2. Click the "Save Link As..." choice, and
  3. Save the file with an appropriate name.

Explanation of Length and Icons:

The size of files is given as the number of mega-bytes (MBytes), but only for those files greater than 1 mega-byte in size. The Length of audio and video files is given either as hh:mm or hh:mm:ss (hh=hours, mm=minutes, ss=seconds).

When you hover your mouse on a string of text labeled
<<INFO>> This tooltip contains more information.
, you will see more information; usually this is about the contents of the audio or video file of the presentation.
