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

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.
