How to use Apple Remote Control to contol Apps running in Windows?

So I'm running VMWare Fusion on my MBP and I would like to be able to use my Apple Remote Control with MS PPT 2007 in XP. Is this possible? How?

Thanks in advance. I did a bunch of searching here and the net in general, and never really found anything.

Actually, this isn't working for me. I downloaded it, read all the blog entries and tips and still no dice running in VMWare.

Any tips?

The program linked to above is now working. You just have to be sure you have the appropriate driver installed in Windows from the Mac OS X disc.
