PPTX upload process failed

I'm actually using office automation on Win7 64-bit with PowerPoint to manipulate PowerPoint presentations. A PPTX was uploaded from the internet and the process failed. I opened the PPTX directly with PowerPoint and got the error "PowerPoint found a problem with content" and asked if I wanted to repair. I said yes, saved it as another PPTX, and everything was ok. This happens only with this one file.

I've unchecked all the protected view settings in the trust center, set my computer to authentication and impersonation to connect and identify, enabled macros and Active X controls, added the upload path to trusted settings, right-clicked the PPTX, properties, but there is no "unblock" to unblock. Nothing has fixed the issue. What else can I check or is this just a bad PPTX since it's the only one we've found like this?

Sounds like a corrupted file.

Did you manipulate the XML of this particular presentation with code? Open XML is very unforgiving and even tiny mistakes will give that error message. You should also consider that it's just a corrupt file though complex tables can cause errors. You may have to restore the file back. For this purpose you can use PowerPoint Recovery Toolbox. You will be able to recover the file. Since it happened only with this file, I would assume that the problem is not in the program or server. http://www.oemailrecovery.com/powerpoint_recovery.html

Corrupted PPTX. There are some file recovery and data recovery programs you can try to see if you can get the file back. Remember to disable macros and ActiveX for your security.
