If you download the PowerPoint and it saves as a *.zip file, just rename it to .pptx and it will work fine.

    When you download the above file it downloads incorrectly as a .ZIP file. You have to rename the file extension to .PPTX Then it opens ok.

      That’s strange, Steve. When I download the file it shows up as a .pptx file.

      If anyone else has this happen, please leave a comment.

    Hi Charles,

    It seems to be an Internet Explorer issue. It works fine on firefox. On IE8 on Win7 x64 it gives me a Zip file download.

    Actually with Opera 11.10 it gives me a Zip file download too.

    Steve, thanks, what is happening is the download comes in as a ZIP. I read on another link to rename to pptx and all works. Thanks again.

      Sorry about that, Derek.

      I have spent quite a bit of time thwarting hackers, and some of my links were broken because of that. Everything should be working again.
