SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

TechNet provides a nice set of instructions for configuring PowerPoint Services.

Excerpt:

2) In the Central Administration Web site, in the Application Management section, click Manage service applications.

3) On the Service Applications page, click PowerPoint Service Application

Only one problem... There is no "PowerPoint Service Application" link present. Furthermore there are no Powershell commands related to PowerPoint available to me such as Get-SPPowerPointServiceApplication.

Can someone tell me where to find them?

You likely need to install the Office Web Apps - it is a separate install and separate download from MSDN.

In SharePoint 2013 you will not be able to see PowerPoint Service Application. Use below PowerShell command to create PowerPoint Service Application.

  1. Run PowerShell Command using administrator.

  2. Perform as per below script,

        PS C:\Users\spAdmin> Get-SPServiceApplicationProxy            
        PS C:\Users\spAdmin> $SAProxy= Get-SPServiceApplicationProxy |?{$_.DisplayName -eq "PowerPoint Automation Service Applications Proxy"}
    
        PS C:\Users\spAdmin> $SAProxy 
    
        PS C:\Users\spAdmin> Get-SPServiceApplicationProxyGroup 
    
        PS C:\Users\spAdmin> Get-SPServiceApplicationProxyGroup |?{$_.FriendlyName -eq "[default]"} 
    
    
        PS C:\Users\spAdmin> $SAGroup= Get-SPServiceApplicationProxyGroup |?{$_.FriendlyName -eq "[default]"}
    
        PS C:\Users\spAdmin> $SAGroup 
    
        PS C:\Users\spAdmin> Add-SPServiceApplicationProxyGroupMember $SAGroup -Member $SAProxy
