Default Creating a Powerpoint Screensaver

I need some advice on the best way to create a screensaver out of a powerpoint in VB. I had hoped that I could simply place it as an OLE object but it doesn't seem to be in the list. I also want the presentation to play without PowerPoint installed. I have tried creating an instance of PowerPoint.Application, loading the ppt and running the show, but when the presentation starts I am unable to respond to the form events (Click, DoubleClick, KeyPress and MouseMove) which are necessary to quit the screensaver.

you can use getasynckeystate API to track a key press and getcursorpos to track mouse within a timer.u should create a ppt application from within vb and run the required slide from VB.This works fine for me.
