I tried opening my powerpoint presentation but it came up with this message "PowerPoint can't read the outline from C:\Umbria.ppt. No text converter is installed for this file type.", tried opening it in open and repair but it doesn't work. I tried Office recovery but that even doesn't work.

Microsoft Update executed ?
Sometimes renaming the ppt-file helps *.ppt into *.pptx and try to open it.

I'm running out of ideas. Maybe this : try the demo-version, but don't buy it yet. Quite expensive. Pffft

Did you ever store this ppt-file on a CD/DVD-RW and try to edit it, while it was still on CD/DVD-RW ?
If yes, this might have corrupted your ppt-file.

OK. This won't hurt your ppt-file, but it could have been a possibility. :thumbsup:

I also checked my USB for any errors and it came up clean.

Cryptodan have you tried Recover Data for PowerPoint File Recovery yet? It looks useful, i can't download it because i would most likely go over my internet usage.

No, I only use Word and Excel of MS Office, not the other softwares. My working days are over and I don't have any challenge anymore regarding applications at work.

I haven't tried it yet, because I think it needs to be done on the computer it was produced on.

Solved, used this recovery program called Kernel Powerpoint Recovery. Had to pay $99 for this program but it saved by time of redoing my presentation! :thumbsup:
