After creating a single slide with just one line of text and saving the file as junk.ppt, I was unable to read the file with any of the recent versions of Microsoft's Powerpoint Viewer. All attempts lead to the error message "Powerpoint viewer cannot open the file junk.ppt" The Microsoft conversion option check boxes were both checked. My file junk.ppt is attached.
There was no problem with either OpenOffice or PowerPoint Viewer. The problem was simply that the Microsoft Viewer would not open the file when it was in use by Impress.
- Contains a single slide with one line of text.
