PPT Reading Failure. ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Cannot Be Negative

b.zip (9.2 MB)
When read this ppt, throw this exception:

com.aspose.slides.exceptions.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Cannot be negative.

Here is my code

Presentation pres = new Presentation("C:\Users\123\Desktop\b.ppt");

How to solve this problem?

Thank you for reporting the issue.

I’ve reproduced the problem with loading the presentation and added a ticket with ID SLIDESJAVA-38889 to our issue tracking system. We apologize for any inconvenience. Our development team will investigate the case. You will be notified when the issue is resolved. Unfortunately, I don’t see a workaround for the case.

It would be great if you could share the following additional information:

  • OS version where the code was executed
  • JDK version in your app

We will then also test a solution in an environment similar to yours.

My OS version is windows 10.
This problem also occurs in Linux systems.
JDK version is 1.8.0_292

Thank you for the additional information. I’ve forwarded it to our developers.
