When I open a saved slideshow it opens to the slideshow production window which leads you through the 3 production steps again. I simply want to open the show on the computer for viewing.

 

What format is it? If it is a saved project file, you can't play it. You must oputput it from the application as a video file.

 

If it is a standard video format, the you can play it with WMP, CinePlayer or the free VLC.

There are at least 3 ways to create slideshows in C2010. You chose one of the wizards which is really not the best way to do it. Most of us here recommend using Videwave (Edit video - advanced) to create the slideshow. The wizards are really only for the simplest of projects.

 

Since you already have the slideshow project (saved as a dmss file), you can open that project file in Videowave.

 

Launch Videwave, then select select File/Open Production. In the File Type drop-down menu select "Slideshow (*.dmss) and navigate to the folder where you slideshow project was saved. Select the correct dmss file and click Open. Your slideshow project should now appear in Videowave. You can now preview it, make edits or output to a video file that can be played on your computer. You should also save this Videowave project as a project file. Next time you want to work on this slideshow, just double-click the Videowave project file (has the extension dmsm). You should also realize that the slideshow you just created is a video and will not behave like "normal" slideshow, ie, there is no "next" or "previous" or other navigation controls. The qualit of the images will also be less then the original photos.
