Error opening presentation

Hi,


The attached presentation throws an exception whenever we open it.

There is a slightly different exception depending on the Aspose.Slides version.

Version 8.8
com.aspose.slides.PptxException: reading animation group failed.

The code I’m using is as follows:
try {
String filename = “/Users/ianc/Desktop/untitled folder 2/pptx/8M_49pages.pptx”;
// Version 8.8 code
// PresentationEx presentation = new PresentationEx(filename);

// Version 14.6 code
Presentation presentation = new Presentation(filename);

String targetFile = filename + “.pdf”;
PdfOptions saveOptions = new PdfOptions();
presentation.save(targetFile, SaveFormat.Pdf, saveOptions);
} catch (Exception x) {
x.printStackTrace();
}

Thanks, Ian.
