EXE back to PPT

I converted a number of PPTs to EXE using a random tool a couple of years ago.
A student pointed out an error in all of them, but I don't have the old PPTs to recompile.
Redoing the PPT is not an option.

Any suggestions?

Sorry, but you answered your own question because it really IS the only option.  However, you could do some screen captures and creativley edit and import into PPT.

afaik EXE files are compiled, which means you can't un-compile them to extract the ppt.
You can google for this functionality if you want, as there are companies out there that can do a limited uncompile, but be prepared to shell out some $$$.

Otherwise, your only options are to (1)  Find the originall ppt, change, re-compile into an EXE, and distribute, or (2)  live with the error.

Hope this helps.

If the work is not confidential, and depending on what software you used to create the EXEs, I may be able to get back the original PPT files.

If you visit our website you can find the email address to email a file to me for testing. If you click my name in "top 15 overall ms office" box on the right, you will find our website.
