Have you tried releasing the object:

Chris
Dim oPP As Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.ApplicationClass
                            Dim oPresSet As Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.Presentations
                            Dim oPres As Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.PresentationClass


                            Try
                                oPP = GetObject(, "PowerPoint.Application")
                            Catch ex As Exception
                                oPP = New Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.Application
                            End Try

                            oPP.Visible = True
                            oPresSet = oPP.Presentations
                            oPres = oPresSet.Open((SrceFileName), , , True)
                            oPP.ActivePresentation.SaveAs(_destname, 1, )
                            oPP.ActivePresentation.Close()
                            oPP.Quit()
system.runtime.interopservices.marshal.releasecomobject (opp)
opp = nothing

Open in new window

Hi Chris,

I tried that but it didn't work. It closes all the active presentations but powerpoint remains open in minimized state.
in word, i have done as

 newword_.Documents.Application.ActiveWindow.View.FullScreen = False
                newword_.Quit()

it closes winword from taskbar. similarly what we can do for powerpoint??

Honestly can't help then ... I expected release object on the app and presentation would have done it.

oPP.Quit I would have thought would work too.

Is this 2010 or an earlier version
