Hi guys,

I'm interested in creating a small program to run on Windows Vista, that can read through all powerpoint files in a folder and open up the file that contains a particular phrase that I want to search for.

I'm not expert programmer, but am reasonably good at C programming. I have done C++ too, but am not too confident on it. Have not learnt visual basic.

So, what would you all recommend for this task? What IDE should I use: Visual Basic or Visual C++ (Visual Studio)?

Please help me out here.

Thanks y'all.

If you are good in the C domain I would suggest Visual C++
