A fallback might be the equation editor that is built into Powerpoint.

Another PowerPoint plug-in for inserting Latex equations is IguanaTex:

Unlike TexPoint, you can download it for free.

There is a shortcut that has saved me a lot of time and grief. No need to install anything.
I view the output of the LaTeX in pdf, using Acrobat Reader. Then I highlight the equation, save it to the clipboard, go to Powerpoint and paste it!!

I just started using IguanaTex (for Powerpoint 2000, 2003, and 2007).
One advantage of it (and TexPoint and
http://users.ecs.soton.ac.uk/srg/softwaretools/presentation/TeX4PPT/ for 2003 and
http://sites.google.com/site/tex4ppt/ [Broken] for 2007)
over the online image-renderers [which have been very useful!]
is that you can edit the original LaTeX and update the rendered-image.

I believe the LaTeX code is embedded in the image file,
which is extracted by these offline tools.
