powerdot and miktex 2.7 problems

Hi

I have been trying to help out a colleague that is using powerdot on  
windows (using miktex 2.7) and he is experiencing two vexing problems,  
that I have not been able to fully solve. As I work on a mac with  
texlive, I am not very familiar with his setup, so there may be  
obvious things that I do not realize.

1 - the output pdf file is in portrait format, rather than landscape  
(this, or something similar, used to happen when texlive 2008 came  
out, and was solved by replacing config.ps; is this also a problem for  
miktex?)

2 - the current version of movie15 causes an error and appears to be  
incompatible with powerdot (a problem that happened some 3 years ago,  
and as I recall the author was very helpful and got it sorted out very  
quickly at the time).
    This one I was able to circumvent by placing the texlive included  
version of movie15.sty in the same folder as the document to typeset.
    I realize this one is not a powerdot problem per se, but I don't  
know how to contact the author of movie15, and maybe he still follows  
this list or someone knows how to reach him for help.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Check the options for dvips in the TeX environment.. I solved this by 
adding "-t landscape" to my dvips command.

How to exclude a slide in handout mode

Hi there,

is it possible to exclude a slide from the handouts?  A slide should
be shown normally if

  mode=present

but should not be shown if

  mode=handout   (or mode=print)

Thanks in advance.

Yes, using \pdifsetup to test the settings for the presentation, see below.

\documentclass[

\pdifsetup{present}{

}{}
\begin{slide}{3}
\end{slide}
