Dear Syncfusion-Team,

we are looking for a component that converts office-documents (doc, docx, xls, xlsx, ppt, pptx) to pdf. We found your product, Syncfusion FileFormats.

I'm able to convert most formats except ppt - here I'm retrieving the error "Wrong presentation version". Will this be supported in the future?

I still have another question: I could not found anything about requirements. We would like to use it in a server-application without MS Office. Is the installation of MS Office required or does it work standalone?

Looking forward to your answer,

Yours sincerely,

Simon Siefert

Hi Simon,
Thank you for using Syncfusion product.
At present we provide support for PPTX file format alone and we don’t have support to PPT file format. The PPTX is the default file extension for saving files in PowerPoint 2007 and later editions. We have plans to implement support for “PPT” file format in the near future but we cannot be able to provide you with concrete timeline at the moment. We have raised a feature request for your requirement. You can able to track the feature progress through this below feature link.

It is standalone and does not require MS Office installation.


Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
Thanks,
Devisri

Is there any update on this feature request. When I click on the link, it leads to a generic page with no information on this feature request. Thanks,

Hi Joseph,  

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.  

At the moment, we do not have immediate plans to provide Support for PPT file format in Presentation library. We have already logged this 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. We request you to visit our website periodically for feature related updates. 

Sorry, the link was wrongly updated here, the feature is logged in our database under that link which is for internal follow up. 
  
Work Around for PPT file format  
You can use B2X translator to convert Microsoft Office binary file format(.PPT) to Office Open XML standard format(.PPTX). This translator is an open source project that can be used as a work around for Office binary formats interoperability. 

UG documentation  
You may refer the following online UG documentation to know more about supported features:  

Please let me know if you have any question.  

Thanks,  
Devisri
