How do I make a powerpoint into a movie that will play ALL slides automatically?

I am having trouble making my presentation into a movie. It only plays the first slide.
How do I make it a movie and have it play ALL slides?

I’m not clear on if you want to save your PowerPoint out into some sort of movie format or just have it play as PowerPoint all the way through on its own.

If just how to play automatically in PowerPoint:

In PowerPoint XP/2003, right click anywhere on the slide and select Slide Transition. The Transition palette will open up. In it, you can set whatever transition you want going into that slide (if you haven’t already). Then at the bottom where it says Advance Slide, set it for Automatically After and put in how many seconds you want it to stay on screen for. You can click Apply to All Slides if you want the same setting for all slides, or go through and set each slide’s timing individually.

In PowerPoint 2007 – basically the same thing, different location. Go to the Animations tab. Choose your transition from the icons, and set the Advance Slide settings the way I described above.

That will now play it automatically. If you want it to loop continuously, go to the Slide Show pulldown menu –> Set Up Show (in XP/2003) or Slide Show tab, Set Up Slide Show button (in 2007) and click on Loop Continuously Until Esc (ape).
