Using the code above (which I copy pasted from the sample), I can convert PPTX to PDF.. but when I tried to convert PPT to PDF, it returns the error
Syncfusion.Compression.Zip.ZipException: Zip exception.Can't locate end of central directory record.

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion product.
We have checked the details and Syncfusion Essential Presentation library only supports manipulating "PPTX" documents and this error message will be shown while you are using “ppt” documents (the file extension for PowerPoint 2003 and earlier versions) in our presentation library.
We would like to inform you that we have logged “Need support for using PPT documents in Essential Presentation library” as a feature request in our database. We will implement this feature in any of our upcoming releases. We usually have an interval of at least three months between releases. The feature implementation would also greatly depend on the factors such as product design, code compatibility and complexity. Please log on to our support website to check for further updates:

Did this ever make it into the product?
I'm still receiving the same issue.

Thank you for your update.
The Essential Presentation library doesn’t support the PPT format document. The current version of Essential Presentation supports the .PPTX, .PPTM, .POTX, .POTM file formats only. So, we suggest you to open the input PPT format document in Microsoft Power point and save as PPTX format. Then, convert to PDF using Presentation library.
