I checked with "3.0.0 Beta Multilingual version English UI WIN XP: [300m2
(Build9301)]" and can confirm the reported effect. Same with "2.4.0 
Multilingual version German UI WIN XP: [680m12(Build9286)]". 

As you see in the Open Dialogue, OOo only supports .ppt since Version 97. So
this is no DEFECT.

This issue is a DUP of enhancement request Issue 58203 

Thank you for your attention!
