  • Hi Amina,

    Based on your description, I guess you want to load one PowerPoint file in the VB.net. If yes, please refer to the code below.

    Note: please right-click Add Reference..--- add Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.dll

    Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
            Dim ppApp As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.Application()
            ppApp.Visible = Microsoft.Office.Core.MsoTriState.msoTrue
            Dim oPresSet As Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.Presentations = ppApp.Presentations
            Dim oPres As Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint._Presentation = oPresSet.Open("D:\test\VB.pptx", Microsoft.Office.Core.MsoTriState.msoFalse, Microsoft.Office.Core.MsoTriState.msoFalse, Microsoft.Office.Core.MsoTriState.msoTrue)
        End Sub

    Hope it is helpful to you.

    Best regards,

  • You might want to try the OLE Container Surrogate component to display your PowerPoint document:


    There is nothing included in .NET for embedding Office documents into Windows Forms.
