Old Powerpoint presentation - unable to open

By larryecollins ·
I have a PowerPoint presentation (PPT) from 1994 which I cannot seem to open with any new version of PowerPoint. I get this odd message "You are attempting to open a file type that is blocked by your registry policy setting." But the file type is PPT, just like newer files under PowerPoint. HELP! I really need these old presentations!

You may want to try opening it with Open Office. I find in many cases I can open older Office files using it.

You might also want to post this as a question. There are folks that stick to the Question forum and rarely visit the Discussions forum. That will get the most eyes looking at your issue.

Please don't forget to mark helpful answers in the Question forum!

Good Luck!
