View Reports as Powerpoint not working

<p>I have installed the lastest version of BIRT on eclipse and can no longer view reports as powerpoint.   I can do pdf and word OK.  I'm using the Office 2013 version on Windows 10 and IE/Chrome browsers.   I get the file downloaded but powerpoint gets an error on opening.   Below is the URL and header of the powerpoint .ppt file that was downloaded.   Any suggestions?</p>

<p>The emitters I am using are:</p>
<p>org.eclipse.birt.report.engine.emitter.ppt_4.6.0.v201606072122</p>
<p>org.eclipse.birt.report.engine.emitter.pptx_4.6.0.v201606072122</p>

  • <p>I ended up replacing the 4.6 emitter with an older version of the Powerpoint emitter (4.4.0) and it worked.  </p>
    <p> </p>
    <p>I replaced</p>
    <p>org.eclipse.birt.report.engine.emitter.pptx_4.6.0.v201606072122</p>
    <p>with</p>
    <p>org.eclipse.birt.report.engine.emitter.config.pptx_4.4.0.v201405191524</p>
    <p>and renamed it to the original file.  </p>
    <p> </p>
    <p>Everything works now. </p>
