Is this just with the specific document or all your PowerPoints?
Also waht version of windows and powerpoint do you have?
I see your problem.... Version 14.0.4754.1000 of Powerpoint is only Powerpoint Viewer 2010.

If you want to edit the file, write click the file, open with and look for the powerpoint application, MAKE SURE IT IS NOT THE VIEWER(this is what you are doing now)

Seems to be happenning with just one document.

I am using Windows 7 with Powerpoint 2010.
Document is being open with Powerpoint not the viewer.

Thanks,

Is the file a PPT or PPTX format?
PPT
I'm guessing there's something in it that PowerPoint definitely doesn't like.

I was asking about file format because you can crack open the PPTX format and remove typically offending items like images and multimedia and maybe get some of it to work, but that's difficult, maybe impossible, to do with PPT format.

http://process.networktechs.com/comctl32.dll.php says that this DLL is a Windows file, and elsewhere it mentions something about it being related to Windows styles. If that's the case, it seems odd to me that only your one file would cause PPT to crash if that's the case, but at least it's not happening on all files!

If you boot into Windows Safe Mode, can PPT open the file then? What if you change the Windows Theme to Windows Basic? Does it maybe work then?

Do you have any PowerPoint add-ins installed? Open PowerPoint to a new, blank presentation and then choose File | Options | Add-ins. What's listed?
Active Appllication Add In

Send to Bluetooth

Inactive Application Add Ins

Custom XML Data
Invisible On-slide content
Off-slide content
One Note Notes about Powerpoint Presentations
Presentation Notes



While checking the add ins, Powerpoint crashed even with a blank presentation.  So I guess its not related to just one file.  Problem log follows:
