I have power point 2007 runiing on Vista. when I try to open some ppt files made in 97 through 05 it says it does not recognize some of the files and can not open them. I have installed the MS converter. Is there anything else I can do or use to open the files?

Thank you

I installed that one also. the one that waorked was:

1. Download the appropriate files from the Microsoft Download Center. To do this, click one or more of the following links:
o To re-enable Word file types only, save the following file to a folder on the computer:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/8...UnblockWord.reg
o To re-enable Excel file types only, save the following file to a folder on the computer:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/8...nblockExcel.reg
o To re-enable PowerPoint file types only, save the following file to a folder on the computer:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/8...kPowerPoint.reg
o To re-enable the CorelDraw (CDR) file type only, save the following file to a folder on the computer:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/8.../UnblockCDR.reg
Note To change the settings for the CDR file type, you must be logged on as an administrator. If you are using a Windows Vista-based computer, you must be running with an elevated application. By default, regedit will prompt for elevation when it runs the .reg files. This behavior occurs because the filters that are used to import some older image formats such as CorelDraw CDR files are registered in the machine-wide settings, not in the per-user settings.
2. Double-click the file that you saved in step 1.
3. Click Yes to confirm the installation of the file.
4. If an Office program is running, restart the Office program.
After you install the update, the registry settings will be updated to allow you to open and to save all file types that are supported by Microsoft Office 2003. These file types include the file types that are blocked by default in Office 2003 SP3. The parsing code that is used to open and to save the file types is less secure. We recommend that you install these updates only if you need to work with the file types regularly.



Thank you
