I need to open this pptx-file. Can anyone help me with that?
Made in Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 and cannot been seen or open with any applications...
If it can't be open, how can I fix the file. Cannot attach the file because the size is large 23mg.

if you want to open PPTX in PPT 2003 see this:

Or download PPTX viewer:

If you don't have Microsoft Office, you can use either OpenOffice or LibreOffice.

✔ Best Answer
What Office version are you using and is it Microsoft or an alternative?

Early versions of Office do not open pptx (compressed) files and there is no way you can stitch up the file to allow this.

You could always put the file on an upload website and let us know the URL they give you. Here is one you don't have to sign up to:

EDIT:
Seems the above has stopped working. You could try this instead, although I've not used it myself:

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

re: "Early versions of Office do not open pptx (compressed) files and there is no way you can stitch up the file to allow this."

That would depend on end on how early you mean.

There is a compatibility pack for Office XP and Office 2003 that allows the opening of the "x" version of Office documents. I think it works for Office 2000 also but I'm not 100% sure.

Try this and see if it helps:

Navigate to the file location,
then Right-Click on the PPTX file.
Select PROPERTIES.
In dialogue box, you should see a button marked UNBLOCK,
click on this and then press OK.

Hmm, then maybe I should have spelled out that MS Office 2003 and before could not naturally open pptx files without an additional package. The compatibility pack introduces the capability but does not stitch up the file itself, which remains as is.

I'm still using MS Office 2003 on Win 8.1 with the compatibility packs (despite MS implying you can't). I've found no reason to pay for a later version as it does all I need.

Here is another possible solution, if UNblocking does not work:

Look down a bit to the UPDATE section.
Seems some of the Trust Center settings in Powerpoint may be the culprit.

Just realised we've been chatting amongst ourselves on this one. Most likely #1 will turn out to be your answer if you have MS Office 2003 or below. Otherwise check the other ideas and lets have the info requested.
