can't copy picture to other presentation

I want to copy a group shape from presentation A to presentation B.  
And the group has a picture and two textboxes.

The code I write was completed,the textboxes are on presentation B,but there is not my picture and I see a red X on white square.

Which is the wrong point on my code?

my code:
 using (FileStream fileStreamTo = new FileStream(ResolveApplicationDataPath("presentationB.pptx"), FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read, FileShare.Read))
                FileStream fileStreamFrom = new FileStream(ResolveApplicationDataPath("presentationA .pptx"), FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read, FileShare.Read);

                IPresentation presentationFrom = Presentation.Open(fileStreamFrom);

                ISlide slideFrom = presentationFrom.Slides[0];

                IGroupShape groupShapeFrom = slideFrom.GroupShapes[0];

                IShapes shapes = groupShapeFrom.Shapes;

                ISlideItem newgroupshape = groupShapeFrom.Clone();

                IPresentation presentationTo = Presentation.Open(fileStreamTo);

                ISlide slideTo = presentationTo.Slides[0];

Hi Dilli babu,

Thank you for reply.
I tried the scenario with the presentation files which you attached,but same issue was happened.
So the issue maybe not document specific.

I'm using Free trial now,and its latest version is "".

Can I try v16.4.0.46 for free?

Hi Meikanda,

I tried the code with new sample which made with Syncfusion ASP.NET Core (EJ1) Control Panel.
And then,the issue didn't occur...
I'm sorry for confusing you.
