Exception During Import PowerPoint


I am getting this error message "Exception During Import PowerPoint" (see attached) when attempting to import a PowerPoint file into Storyline 2. I have done this before and never had a problem. It's saved as a .ppt and nothing seems out of the ordinary with the file itself. Can someone please help me?

Thank you!

Hi Kristin!

In addition to the things Wendy mentioned, as well as ensuring you're working locally, you might want to try running both Storyline and Microsoft PowerPoint as administrator and see if you would be able to import a PowerPoint file. 

Look for the EXE file of Storyline and PowerPoint. Right-click the file and select "Run as administrator". Once both programs are opened as admin, try importing the PowerPoint file in Storyline.

hi alyssa! we are unable to run as admins in my company. i will have to get desk side support to log-on my computer as an admin and have them upload it for me. otherwise i am going to be doing a TON of copy / paste from PPT into Storyline (and i don't want to have to do that).
