Sample PPT file for testing but crash occurs with any PPT

All PPT files crash AOO 4.2.0 on opening on my Windows 7 x64 machine (tested with  Rev. 1831525 from mseidel and also with Rev. 1832057 from the Buildbot)

There is no problem with ODP or PPTX.

This is a confirmed (by mseidel) regression from 4.1.5

Confirmed with every PPT I tried.
Even if you save an ODP as PPT and then try to open it AOO crashes.

This seems to be Windows only.
Comment 2 Pedro 2018-06-04 11:05:55 UTC
Further details: if another file has already been open (e.g. an ODS file) even if it is closed before opening a PPT file then AOO will not crash.
The crash occurs if AOO is open without any file been previously opened or when AOO is closed (open by file association)
Comment 3 Pedro 2019-10-24 19:36:33 UTC
Crash still occurs every time under Windows 7 x64 with Matthias' build
AOO420m2(Build:9821)  -  Rev. d08390903b
2019-10-22 20:51 - CYGWIN_NT-10.0 x86_64 - Development Test Build

I have tried today with my Linux build based on trunk and it did work. Is it a Windows only Issue or is it specific to 4.2.0 and Trunk it works?

I will check if I can do a windows build in the next days.

(Sidenote: When opening a ppt, I get tons of Assertion errors.)
Comment 5 Matthias Seidel 2020-01-18 17:30:51 UTC
I am pretty sure that this is Windows only,

And it is a regression, so trunk and 4.2.0 are broken.
