PowerPoint Crashes When Typing in Windows 7 BootCamp

If you have searched the internet looking for a reason why PowerPoint crashes when you start typing anything, and you happen to be running in Windows 7 via BootCamp on the Mac, the fix is simple:

In Control Panel, click on “Change keyboards or other input methods”:

changekeyboardinput

In the Region and Language dialog box, click on the Change keyboards… button:

regionlanguage

Finally, add the English US Keyboard by pressing the Add button:

USKeyboard

That’s it!  Seems odd, but it works!
