Problem with OpenXML 2.0 and PowerPoint 2007/2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using OpenXML 2.0 SDK to generate power point files from a list of Bitmaps that are passed in.  The idea is that I am already generating the slide in the form of an image, just need to create a presentation that puts one image per slide.   I created the following code from various different articles and SDK documentation.   When I call the method CreateSlides and pass in a list of bitmap images it generates the powerpoint with one image per slide just fine.  the template files (2007.pptx and 2010.pptx) are created by powerpoint of the same version with no slides like the sdk directs.  If I run the resulting presentation through validation it comes up with no errors at all.   The issues I am seeing are when you open the document with powerpoint 2007 and/or powerpoint 2010.  Here are the results:

    Open with PowerPoint 2010:  It errors saying PowerPoint found and error with the content and could repair it.  User hits repair and all the slides show up fine.

    Open with PowerPoint 2007:  It errors that PowerPoint found issues and user hits repair.  No slides show up at all.   

    I have been over and over this code and do not understand why powerpoint would be needing to repair this.   I expanded both the output pptx and the repaired version and did diffs on all the files.  All I am seeing is some renaming of rId's.  and Slide.xml is being renamed to Slide1.xml.  I have changed the way I was generating rId's several times to make sure it wasn't that, all of the rIds that I am putting in there should be unique.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction?  I am not understanding why this is having issues.
