Advance Slide Question

Is there any way that I can change the advance slide option from 999 seconds to be 86400 seconds? (86400 seconds equates to 24 hours)
I have a dining menu system and I want the daily slide to advance every 24 hours. Currently I am running multiple slides that advance every 15 minutes. Not ideal because of the amount of slides needed. Any help or workarounds will be great. Thanks

for automated changes of display with this kind of time frame, perhaps look at the task scheduler in Windows. Either run taskschd.mmc (for a GUI) or run cmd and use schtasks.exe (the CLI for the task scheduler). You can use this to run a presentation at a specified time, and end it.

Thanks for the suggestion. I will look into this further.
The easy path....and most manageable, is to be able to increase the slide advance timings. I have to consider the technical capability of the onsite support resources, so the solution needs to be easy to understand and manage. Cheers

I'd make a number of (probably single frame) presentations and drive them from a Windows batch file with 24 hour delays between each presentation.
