Extracting images from a powerpoint, without having Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.dll in the GAC RRS feed

    Using Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.dll, I have been using the export function to save slides as PNG files. This requires that the dll is in the GAC. I want to move the app to a hosted environment, but I cannot install to the GAC there. Is there a way for me to convert the slides to PNG files without having Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.dll in the GAC?

    Even if you had access to the GAC you would be out of luck, since the Powerpoint application must also be installed on the server.

    Currently, I think the only way is to use Aspose Slides (or possibly a tiny installation of OpenOffice)
