I can I convert a potx file to a ppt file (microsoft powerpoint 2003)?

Omer :

Hi I am one of the experts here on Just

The easiest way to open this file with Powerpoint 2003 is to download and install the compatability pack for Office programs

Once downloaded and installed your office 2003 powerpoint will be able to open the file. After you open it you may want to do a save as to save it as a powerpoint 2003 ppt.

Thanks for using just

Please let me know if you have any other questions

Downloaded the converter, but the file will still not open.

After you downloaded the converted did you received any error messages during the install of it?


Also when you try and open the file do you receive any errors?


If you received no errors the next thing I would download and install would be the office updates from Microsoft

This link is for service pack 3 for office 2003 once this is installed try to open the potx again,

I followed your instructions, but when I try to open the file, I get "no application found."

When you try and double click on the file?


Try opening powerpoint 2003


In powerpoint go file open and select the file


Powerpoint should then try and open the file
