I have a powerpoint file which was created and saved using PowerPoint 2013.  It is a .pptx file.

When i try to open the file using PowerPoint 2013 i get error message window saying ".pptx won't open in PowerPoint 2013 Look for an app in store"


I can open other PowerPoint files which have been saved in 97-2003 version without any problems.


The laptop i am trying to open this file up on has Windows 10 and Office Professional 2013.

On another PC with Windows 7 and Office Professional 2013 the file opens ok no problems.
