[Issue] Unable to open .pps attachment with openoffice 3.0

Postby ronfraz » Tue Mar 03, 2009 6:10 am

I am unable to open a .pps attachment using openoffice 3.0 impress. I get the message: "Move background page assignment. The loading of password-encrypted Microsoft PowerPoint presentations is not supported." How do I open this attachment??? I have tried to upload this attachment, but I only get "the extension pps is not allowed!"

Try to zip it for upload here or use a 3rd party site (see: How to attach a document here).

Do you have some reason to believe that the .pps document is not password protected? If the message is accurate, then what more success should we expect with your document?

If you follow the link given by Hagar, you will find instructions for handling unsupported file types and files larger than 128k.

I have no reason to think the following pps attachment is password-encrypted, but I cannot open it with openoffice 3.0.1.

I see the same error.

It seems that someone has already reported this as a bug: Issue 97966: Failed to open a pps file without password encryption

I am seeing the same error with version 3.1 running on Vista. It is extremely doubtful that a password was placed on the .pps file. It is a Chanukah card, based on its title.

Have you tried renaming to .ppt?
