Cannot open PPTX file


I cannot open PPTX files, even with Aspose.Slides Attached is a sample.

We use Aspose.Slides to extract text from PPT documents, and reinsert text in them.
I am aware that support for PPTX is not full, but should it work for this kind of application?

For reading pptx files, you have to use the PresentationEx class available in Aspose.Slides.Pptx namespace. I found no problem reading the file attached through PresentationEx object.

You are right. Thank you for the information. I should have known, I suppose.

Now I am trying to reprogram my PPT process for PPTX, and I am having trouble with the different object model. I have read that you would publish a programmer’s guide, but I cannot find it. Any news or suggestions, or code examples?




I shall update the documentation soon. During the time, you can explore the Aspose.Slides.Pptx API available in the documentation and feel free to post any queries.
