"No text converter is installed for this file type" in PowerPoint.

Cannot open an attachment even though I have the compatibility pack installed. Have Windows XP and Office PowerPoint 2003.

Any ideas?

Answer
Answer
2003 should open ppt files. The compat pack is NOT required.

Possibilities are the file is from version 95 or saved in a 95 compatable format
The file is corrupt

If the former there is a registry hack available to enable these files to be opened. Scroll down to the relevant download
