Ovation and PowerPoint 2007

Is there any way to make Ovation work with PowerPoint 2007 slides? I've tried converting the .pptx to .ppt files, but this doesn't work. Any third party apps anyone know of? Thanks.

If you have the compatibility pack loaded, and you open a 2007 powerpoint, it will automatically kick in.  In the title bar at the top it should say "Compatibility Mode"

It seems to have some compatibility issues with PowerPoint 2007, but it works if you start PowerPoint in compatibility mode. It will only import presentations saved in PowerPoint 97/2003 formats.
