How to stop autoupdate date

I am evaluating aspose.slide and i have a requirement to stop the autoupdate date in TextFrame,Header and Footer.

I want to open ppt file and do some processing to stop autodates from updating and save it in another file such a way that when I again open the saved ppt, autodate should not update.

Also we are facing problem when we are trying to open PASSWORD protected PPT file. Do you have any idea how to open this type PPT.

It would be great if you can provide us code in vb.net.

I would like to know that office 97,95(PPT file) can be opened using Aspose.slide as when we tried to open Office 97 it gives error.

One more thing that can mcro be disabled in aspose.slide.

Please suggest.



Dear Ashish,

I have requested technical team lead to answer your query and you will get a reply as soon as possible.

I’m sorry but password protected presentations are not supported.

Is it possible to stop auto date or put last modify date instead of Auto Update Date.


PowerPoint 95 format is not supported. Also Aspose.Slides can’t manage macros.

To disable auto update date (probably standard footer date?) you should set visibility of footer data on a slide to false and create new shape with new data string.

To disable data footer you can write something like this:
slide.HeaderFooter.IsDateTimeVisible = False

How to add new rectangles with text please read programmer’s guide.
