in reply to Convert PowerPoint Presentation to Word Document with Win32::OLE

As of Office 2003 SP2, Microsoft seem to have changed the API, so that images can no longer be saved directly with OLE, hence YMMV with this feature.

    Just been scouring MSDN Object Model Ref. scratching my head as how to export the images extracted (Doing the reverse though, i.e. sucking images out of word documents). Any suggestions? Thanks.

      The problem seems to be that newer versions of OLE don't export the relevant constants for hidden methods like Export. Adding

      $ole_const->{ppShapeFormatPNG} = 2;

      just after the lines that import the OLE constants seems to fix the problem.
