  • Question

  • I linked a pdf as object in powerpoint. For that I wend to insert-> Object and there I select Create from file I select the pdf file and I check Link checkbox.

    As soon as I press OK button I get the error I put as title. I try to found what was the error and I found some solutions:

    Open the run window and do the following:

    1. regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\ole32.dll

    2. In the RegSvr32 dialog box, click OK.

    3. Restart the computer.

    I also saw in some forums that reinstalling the pdf reader that they have the problem used to be solved. But no one of those solutions works for me I still have the same error.

    EDIT

    I saw that this error is happening even if I try with any type of files so is not pdf error is a linked object error.

    I have tried to insert a pdf file into PowerPoint, but I cannot reproduce your issue.

    My test environment:

    1.       Windows 8 Enterprise(64-bit), Office 2013(32-bit)

    2.       Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit), Office 2010(64-bit)

    I found an possible answer for this issue from Microsoft Community.

  • In the possible answer that you found they are talking about embedded pdf files. Is not my case, it happens with every type of files and when I try to insert them as objects and using the link checkbox, so they are linked objects. Anyway thanks for the reply, I will try in the forum that you told me.
