Description alfeno 2007-08-22 19:52:57 UTC
I want to view a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation in Ooo impress. I had
problems when I tried to open the archive .ppt

Ooo impress needs 120 seconds to import the archive .ppt

My system was idle.Did not have no competing process to dispute power cpu with
Ooo impress

The same problem occur in my Kubuntu Linux.

My computer is Intel Pentium IV - 512 DDR. Windows XP SP4

Comment 4 alfeno 2007-08-23 19:21:26 UTC
The archive has 100 MByte. it contains many pictures.

In the Microsoft PowerPoint, it need only 4 second to appear the presentation.

Exists some way to send the archive?

Please compress the file using 7zip (7zip format) or a similar program/format.
You can download 7zip at (it's free software). Then attach
it here.

If the file is still too big, you can upload it to a file sharing service like
RapidShare ( ) or share it using a P2P network.

Before uploading the file, make sure it doesn't contain any personal information :-)

I can reproduce the poor convert performance.

I haven't measured exactly the time but on a Sempron 3500+ (Keene), 1 GB of RAM,
running Windows Vista, OOG680_m2 needs ~100 seconds for loading. On the same
machine, running Linux Mint 3.0 (based on Ubuntu 7.04, kernel 2.6.20) and OOo
2.2 it takes approximately the same time.

On a Duron 700, 1 GB of RAM, running Windows XP SP1, OOo 2.2 crashes at loading
with a Visual C++ runtime error.

On a K6-2 400, 320 MB of RAM, running Windows XP SP1, OOo 2.2 while loading
starts to allocate more virtual memory (default page file: 320 MB) and later it
it crashes.

Neither of the machines has any problem opening the file with Powerpoint 2000
and even the K6-2 loads the file in a few seconds.

cgu, can you try to reproduce it?

Set to new and change the target.
Comment 9 christian.guenther 2007-08-31 17:45:46 UTC

Tested again with OOo 3.2 RC1, no improvements.
