Develop an application that can host powerpoint slides but prevents powerpoint slides from being opened in PowerPoint - either by bundling into exe or encrypted formar or otherwise. The application should be protected meaning I would like it to be sold to one person but he should not be able to easily copy and give to somebody else.
The hoster application must have the following feature
1. Self installable.
2. I can incorporate any number of powerpoint slides.
3. Have a splash screen.
4. Have a main menu (configurable via XML)
5. Miscellaneous controls such as Exit button, About, menu to launch URL etc
This is not so important, but if you can develop the application to support multiple language in future that will be great. Perhaps through language pack using XML file.
