Error message when inserting PowerPoint slides

If you are receiving "Failed to open the file!" when inserting your PPTX or PPT PowerPoint file through GenCG, then Microsoft Office or PowerPoint might not be installed on your Compix system. It is necessary to have it installed as GenCG uses drivers within to access the file.

Once installed, restart GenCG.

Upon opening, press Insert -> PowerPoint slide and open your file. GenCG will first ask if you would like to import the file as a 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio. Once selected, GenCG will flatten and save each slide in an image sequence and save them next to the original PowerPoint file.

From here, go to Insert -> Image Sequence in GenCG, open the first image in the sequence, then all PowerPoint slides will import successfully.
