Description myoder 2010-12-06 13:57:03 UTC
Tried to open a PPTX made in office 2007 and an error occurred in
opening/converting the file.  It asked to recover the file but nothing happened.
 An earlier issue was closed similar to this because of lack of information.

Comment 2 wolframgarten 2010-12-06 14:12:31 UTC
Opening the file in PPT2007 works. Opening the file in OOO330_m17 crashes the
Office. I have saved a copy of the file with a new name in PPT2007 and this new
copy can be opened wihtout problems in OOO330_m17. Please have a try if this
solves your problem.

Sent auto report after trying to open file this morning (Dec 7. 6:30 am US
Eastern Time).  This crash was from 3.3.0 RC 7 OOO330m17 Build:9551    
Comment 4 wolframgarten 2010-12-07 11:55:16 UTC
Did you try to save it under an new name and open the new file?
Comment 5 myoder 2010-12-07 22:27:22 UTC
I did not try and resave it .  I was sent this file and do not have office 2007.
 I had them resend it under 2003 format and I could open it.  Do you know what
is wrong with the name?  Using the same name but under 2003 ppt format it opened
Comment 6 wolframgarten 2010-12-08 07:51:00 UTC
I think that re-saving the file fixes a problem in the file. In my opinion the
origianl fiel is broken somehow and a new save fixes this.
Comment 7 wolframgarten 2010-12-08 07:52:39 UTC
The orignial fiel crashes OOo. Reassigned. Any idea to this crash, sj?
Comment 8 myoder 2010-12-08 11:58:55 UTC
I had a friend re-save the original file with the same name and re-save the
original file with a new name using office 2007.  In both cases Impress crashed
about half through the progress bar.  I added a new file called

Tried original file in 3.3.0 rc8 and it still crashed on conversion.
Comment 11 clippka 2010-12-21 15:37:40 UTC
had a quick look, problem is that
"ppt/slideLayouts\_relsßslideLayout44.xml.rels" is not readable by our storage
implementation. This leads to a crash in
PresentationFragmentHandler::endDocument() while accessing empty reference
pMasterPersistPtr in line 251.

My guess is that there is either a nonstandard zip encoding used for that file
or maybe the file is locked somewhere else.
Comment 12 myoder 2010-12-21 17:21:46 UTC
Contacted the author of the file.  They did nothing out of the ordinary in
creating the file except using Power Point 2007 and saving it as a pptx.  She
saved the same file as a  Power Point 2003 ppt format by doing the save as in
Power Point and I could open that.  The file was not compressed but downloaded
from the company ftp site.

Comment 14 clippka 2011-01-03 14:05:50 UTC
The problem happens since we open the zip package in 'repair' mode.
To reproduce with my Basic macro change the following

	Dim aProps(1) as new
	aProps(0).Name = "StorageFormat"
	aProps(0).Value = "ZipFormat"
	aProps(1).Name = "RepairPackage"
	aProps(1).Value = true
