Embedding Articulate into face-to-face PPT

Hi, folks. This is one of the questions asked in advance of the European Conference in Leeds - I am hoping that, by posting it here, we may get some more ideas for the participants to ponder over on the day. Also, apologies if these questions have already been answered elsewhere - the fault is entirely mine for not looking properly. Now the question and many thanks in advance to you all for your suggestions:

 

Sometimes, to quickly spice up a face-to-face PPT presentation, someone may want to 'borrow' an Articulate slide or an Engage Interaction... However, embedding the SWF is supported better on some versions of PowerPoint than others - at least this is our experience... does anyone have any advice on a reliable method of achieving what I would like?

I would normally build the interaction in PPT and take advantage maybe of the additional animations that Articulate doesn't support, but I see why someone who's already done this in Engage and just wants to present bits of it to a live audience would not be too excited about redoing the work...

One way I can think for avoiding the SWF-in-PPT-not-supported issue is to have a screenshot of the Engage interaction on a PPT slide. If this screenshot is hyperlinked to a published Engage interaction - the engage.html file I mean - (preferably in the same folder as the PPT for easy transportation), then that would fire up the web browser and would not crash PPT anymore...
