Convert .ppt to .pptx without Compatibility Mode RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, folks!

    I try to convert any kind ppt/pps files to pptx (Office2013) with interop in c# .net 4.5.
    My Application runs on a client pc and should not be vissible.

    I tried SaveAs and SaveCopyAs, but both lead to a presentation in Compatibility Mode.
    The Compatibility Mode can not be left manually by: File->Info->Convert (Popup: SaveAs).

    The Only way i have found, is to find a video. Open Context Menu and Pres 'Preview'.
    A Msg Box appears:
    Media Object Upgrade: We need to upgrade media objects in this presentation. Would you also like us to embed all linked media files an convert legacy media formats?

    To automate this is huge pain itA.

    Is there a way to upgrad a ppt presention to Office 2013 with any feat. avaible without any ui just c#?

    Thx in advance!
