My box has Windows 7 Ultimate with Office 2010 Pro. I have tried converting two PDF's: one with 147 pages, the other with 2 pages. Both conversions FAILED! At the 50% conversion process the software crashes. I receive a "WIN32 debugging" error message on both occasions. I tried several times, nothing converts.

I agree with you that in some cases Ashraf`s comments are specific and sometimes I don`t agree but nevertheless very helpful. But it isn`t true that a isiting his blog creates spams. I visit his blog a couple of month and in the meantime, I am also a registred user but there is no increasing of spams.

I downloaded the program very easily but the problem is that, when I try to convert a pdf file it just keeps saying - "Cann't open Office. please make sure it has been installed correclty" . I have Office 2010 installed to my computer and it works great. i don't know what the problem is. Please help, thanx

Installed, registered and tested A-OK, Win7 with Office2007. A 1-page, fairly complex PDF converted in about 35 seconds.
I can see how this software will be VERY useful!
Thanks, GAOTD - you guys rock!

To eRenegade, post #20:
It's truly amazing how threatened some people find themselves by the mere fact that someone else posts information to help others out here evaluate the usefulness of the daily giveaways. There are several people out here who take the time to evaluate software in a non-cursory manner and post their observations and tips to help others get a feel for the software before taking their own time and perhaps ending up installing something that turns out to be useless to them. Ashraf seems to be the person who puts the most time and attention into doing this on a consistent basis. The short reviews that he posts here give a very good general indication of the pluses and minuses of the software as far as he has been able to deduce it. Obviously the extended reviews that are posted at his site, which often contain extensive use of thumbnails, videos, and references to other software, would neither be technically possible or appropriate for this "comment" format at the GOTD site, so he makes those extended evaluations available elsewhere, for those who might want to know more.

There seems to be some difference of opinion as to whether MS Powerpoint is needed for the proper functioning of this current GOTD offering or not, but if it were indeed necessary, I think anybody with a nickel's worth of common sense would realize that was quite a significant piece of information, rather than "knitpicking", unless you happen to be the kind of person that would buy an automobile and feel it was not important to know that the engine was an additional bit that was not included in the price of purchase and needed to be purchased elsewhere.

As far as complaining about the fact that Ashraf has a web site where people can go for further information about the giveaways here, I suggest that if the existence of that site bothers you so much, you refrain from going there. His site does not require registration to view, and people do not end up on any kind of "spam list" merely by visiting that site. In order to receive email from the site you have to request that, so if you signed up to get on his email list and have now found that you don't like receiving the email, you would probably find it much more productive to unsubscribe from the list rather than whining about the fact that you received email after you signed up for them. By the way, "spam" refers to *unsolicited* email, NOT to email that you requested to have sent to you. You should be a little more clear about the terms you sling around in public, as you may find yourself liable for slander.

In case you are wondering, I am not affiliated with GiveawayOfTheDay, nor am I affiliated with Ashraf's site, nor do I personally know him.

Why people have to snivel and complain about others who take the time to offer their insight out here is completely beyond me. Sheesh.

Sorry but it does NOT work with open office installed. I got the same error others received. Could not open office and to check that it was installed correctly. So for those of you that says it will work with open office, you are wrong.

Installed and registered OK. Added a pdf to convert. On clicking 'Convert' button got message that M$ Office isn't installed: quite right - never has been on this PC! I've got OpenOffice, but this s/w doesn't look for that.
On a previous giveaway someone explained that that some M$ dlls/whatever installed with M$ Office are used by this converter.

Anyway, uninstalled. Waste of time, but not *much* time on ADSL ;)

#18: “At the very least since it’s happening for some folks with Ofc 10 installed, it’s something the dev should probably get a look at & fix.”

I didn’t have any problems so what you experienced is something you probably should get a better look at & fix. If it was something on the dev side the problem would be global. You have to keep it in mind that no dev can’t account for all the junk files accumulated on a novice users PC that leads to issues such as yours.

***
I agree with #10 copycat. I didn’t have any problems least those on a ”Bad” list. While I’m sure ashraf has some good skills technical writing isn’t one of them, and he will likely be described as “nitpicking.” Which is defined in the dictionary as “any process of finding or pointing out tiny details or errors, particularly if the pointed-out details are insignificant or irrelevant to all but the finder.” I couldn’t of said that any better myself. Incidently ashraf is not affiliated with GOTD. He fishes for people to his personal website via cliffhangers. I clicked there once and after that I was swamped by spam...

#5: "when ever i try to convert this error message appears “Output directory ont exist,please select another one”"

In win7 ult 64, clicking to browse for & select an output folder I got an error message because Simpo PDF to PowerPoint Converter didn't have sufficient permission to write to the default folder. You might try selecting a folder that you know exists, & *as/if* needed make sure the app has any permissions it needs &/or run the app as admin.

* * *

#11: "... Thought the question of MS Office or Open Office being needed for conversion or not needed answering so examined processes using Pocess Explorer and at no point during startup or conversion did the program use any external PPT handling DLL’s or EXE files."

FWIW it was/is hard for me to say more as I didn't have any PDFs that were big enough to take enough time to get a good look in Process Explorer before conversion finished, but the file listed below [see next response] did show up After conversion.

"So yes Mr Ashraf was wrong MS Office is not required and neither is Open Office for conversion."

I don't know what the trigger is for Simpo PDF to PowerPoint Converter to throw the error that Ofc isn't installed, but it can & did throw it for me as well, FWIW, so those talking about experiencing the error are legit. -- it can happen. OTOH I along with others perhaps wrongly assumed it's a problem when/if Ofc isn't installed, because that's what the error message says, and the true cause could be something entirely different. At the very least since it's happening for some folks with Ofc 10 installed, it's something the dev should probably get a look at & fix.

#13: "Have tried five times but I keep getting a message: ” Can’t open Office. Be sure that it is installed correctly”. I do have Office 2010. It does work. I have tried opening a blank PPT to no avail. Can anybody help?"

Using Process Explorer [SysInternals at Microsoft.com] the only certain Office file used was Common Files \microsoft shared \OFFICE12 \MSOXMLMF.DLL, but that may/may not have anything to do with it since Groove files/processes were also loaded & they should be irrelevant. Simpo PDF to PowerPoint Converter *may* look for something as simple as a file-type association for .pptx, &/or look for a certain *trigger* key(s) that Ofc install creates, but that's info most easily gotten from the dev. &/or their support.

Simpo PDF to PowerPoint Converter works -- how well depends in large part on what you feed it & how those PDF files were created. It would not work for me when Microsoft Office was not installed, throwing an error that Office was missing, then saying the conversion finished, but there were no output files created. It *may* be satisfied with something less than a full Office install, e.g. another app associated with .pptx files or a PowerPoint viewer, but without any of that installed Simpo PDF to PowerPoint Converter will not work for me. In win7 Ult 64 SP1 RC with full Office 2007 installed I got conversions where every block [e.g. a column title] &/or line of text was a separate object & text was editable. Graphics were positionable objects as well. In some cases conversion looked identical, including PDFs from the free PDF Creator, but others [for example an Asus rebate] were off by a fair amount.

Simpo PDF to PowerPoint Converter installs to a program folder with 222 files, 20 folders, taking up ~20 MB -- deleting [in my case unneeded] language & uninstall files brought that down to 34 files, ~11 MB. Additions to the registry are an uninstall key & today's GOTD license registration.

The PDF format, like Microsoft's XPS is intended for delivery only -- that it's harder to re-purpose the contents is an original selling point. Designers & artists etc. sometimes use it, withholding the contents that went into the PDF until they're paid for that content... in that respect PDF is similar to video DVDs, with software for accessing content developed more on the fringes than mainstream. Also like video DVDs, the focus of the PDF spec is on standardized viewing -- not the internals so-to-speak... as above, my test results Simpo PDF to PowerPoint Converter depended on the individual PDF much more than what was in the PDF to start with.

downloaded and activated fine with XP-sp3, 1.7Ghz/1gig ram/80gig HD laptop, trying to convert a 14meg 28 page 1965 news paper PDF, maybe because of the size of the file and being 28 pages it is extremely slow, hung at 58% and 66%, 78%, may be due to the graphics on those pages, CPU usage at 100%@135,000k up to 178,000k mem usage, after of over an hour trying to convert this file it stopped at 82%, I would not recommend doing large PDF files, now tried just doing 1 page of the same PDF file, was very fast, less than a minute, but the Power Point slide is not readable at all, uninstalling the program now, was really hoping this would work as I have nearly 1 gig of PDF files that I only need one page from each

Installed, activated. Works fine to convert PDF to Power Point file. But the content of these slides is not editable. It would be useful to add this capability to this software.

Installed and registered perfectly. Ran a conversion on a 5 page pdf file that is a very detailed sitework engineering (civil) drawing set and it worked so-so. Some of the text didnt convert well but most of the drawing features (vector artwork) converted just fine. Would use this in a pinch when clients want a PPT file of my work product.

Just installed and registered using information provided on a 32 bit vista home premium sp2 laptop with no problems. Thought the question of MS Office or Open Office being needed for conversion or not needed answering so examined processes using Pocess Explorer and at no point during startup or conversion did the program use any external PPT handling DLL's or EXE files. The conversion was handled completely internally. Only time an external application was used was to launch the systems registered PPT viewer application. So yes Mr Ashraf was wrong MS Office is not required and neither is Open Office for conversion. ANY Powerpoint viewer will work with this, wheither Office PowerPoint or PowerPoint Viewer or OpenOffice Impress. No trnasitions are added, it simply flips slides on standard next slide key/mouse click.
Simple painless and not dependant upon external code that might change in future versions or patches, BUT!
On asking it to Convert to Office 2007/2010 compatible files produces filename.pptx.ppt files which are the same bit for bit content as when the option is unticked and the output is filename.ppt

What it was intending to achieve is uncertain... as PPT files are "Office 2007/2010 compatible files" anyway as Offoce 2007/2010 opens such files in compatability mode!

Other than that ambiguity it seems a functional tool suitable for converting a pre-prepared marketing PDF document into a quick no frills PPT slideshow for an impromptu PR opertunity.

Again, Ashraf if wrong.

It does not require MS Office. You can use Open Office. All MS Office files are compatible with Open Office, so no problem with that.
It works fine with me.

On Win 7 (64 bit) with MS Office 2010. Installed OK, but failed to convert, producing the error message: "Cann't open Office, Please make sure it has been installed correctly!"

This is a simple to use converter and works quite well for the most part however it is still a little buggy on occasion. Testing with page ranges from a batch of PDF files left some of the resulting PPTs with just a range of blank slides whereas doing the whole document worked OK.

It is quite fast to convert and can also convert encrypted PDF files but requires that you have MS Powerpoint installed which may not be the case for many.

A nice feature (which is currently not included) would be to allow combining of PDFs to create one output PPT file. Overall however, as this is free it is worth downloading for your occasional use (if you have powerpoint).

Thanks for GOTD sharing this app.

My instructors only post their PowerPoint lectures in PDF form. This is exactly what I need to convert the PDF files to PowerPoint format. It installs quickly and runs smoothly, and it can convert each PDF page to a different PPT slide, this function helps me a lot to save time, as I needn’t reformat it again after converting my PDF documents.

Thanks again!!
