I can't import PowerPoint in Storyline

Apr 02, 2014

When I try to import a PowerPoint file into Storyline I get this error message:

Exception during Import PowerPoint

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.


Articulate.Storyline.Import.PowerPoint.PowerPointImporter.FetchSlideSelectionInfo(String filename, IProgress progress)

I am running 32-Bit Office Pro 2013 and I already did a "Repair" on the Office installation.

I have the latest version of Storyline running.

I am at a standtill until I get htis fixed ... does anyone have an ideas?

I cannot import .pptx file into Storyline 3.  No error message.  The "Reading PowerPoint file" just keeps spinning for hours.  When I click the X to stop it, Storyline is frozen and I have to stop the task via task manager to close the program.   I am about the recreate the .pptx file in Storyline, but I would love to save that time and get the import to work.  Any suggestions?
