How to get slideshow to play on Powerpoint [closed]

I created a very simple slideshow (a simple template, and outlines in which the individual bullet points are animated with a simple 'appear'), but cannot for the life of me get it to play on a computer with powerpoint.

I've tried saving it as an .odp, .ppt, and .pptx, and every time there is some serious problem with it (i.e., the headings are gone, the animations don't work, etc.). I tried saving it as a .pdf, but then the animations are gone.

Surely there is a way to get a basic slideshow like this to work.

As I recall, F5 will play the presentation on PP but won't auto-restart, and Impress will obey the button too, but I have never run an Impress presentation so I dunno whether it'll auto-restart, although I doubt it, but you can configure it to.

You can circumvent not having LO on the other computer by downloading and "installing" LibreOffice Portable. v4.3.3 Portable ain't out yet, but it'll work anyway.
