Default Using MS PowerPoint features in my app

Hello all, it is my first post here, firstly I would like to say that I will be doing my best to help others if I can.

I was given a project to do that is quite simple in conception but turned out to be quite complex to implement for me if I were to do it the way I want - my client wants me to build a PowerPoint cataloger program that can be put on a CD with tons of .ppt or .pps presentations. This app would list all the files and would show a interactive preview of the currently selected. I have only a basic notion about COM and .NET programming but the sufficient to know that if there´s a way to do that its trough COM/COM+.

The other way would be to store screenshots of the presentations in the jpeg format but I would really want to do it the other way...

To be more specific and direct:

I need to put a interactive thumbnail on my app that will open the current selected presentation file in the listbox. Does the MSPPT type library have this feature? How to access it trough C#.NET?

Thanks in advance,

I have not come acros any 'direct' way to go about it, yet. Although you can create thumbnails "on the fly" by saving the ppt's slide/s as jpeg files throgh your code.
