Yes, add ole automation control in your app, use autogen on
powerpnt.tlb to find out what exactly you need.

But since I'm a a beginner in dll stuff, can you tell me what I have to do next ?
Is autogen an app that will tell me how to make calls to the pptview.dll ?

Depends on the compiler you use, each have their way to transform
.tlb to stub which your compiler native support, select a automation object, which could perform you wanted. Check online
help for further details, it is not easy, you really need do some
study on the topic.

good luck
