PowerPoint 2010 to Flash Converter, with an SDK (Free or less expensive)

I'm developing an application in ASP.NET and i'm looking for a PowerPoint 2010 to Flash Converter.  It need to have an SDK so i can start a conversion from my own program.

So far, i've not found any "free version", neigther cheap.

Does anyone can suggest me such a converter with some automation possibility?
And what's the price if you know it?

So far i've found:
ispring (up to ppt 2010, from 5000-20000$ according to the sales guy)
ppt2swfsdk.com (up to ppt 2010, but don't know the price)
digitalofficepro.com (up to ppt 2010, but don't know the price)
authorgen.com (up to ppt 2007)
sameshow.com (up to ppt 2007)
conaito PPT2Flash SDK (up to ppt 2007, approx 1500$)

Thanks for your help

I've already considered that possibility (if you read my post, you will notice that i've rejected AuthorGen especially because it doesn't convert files from MS PowerPoint 2010).  It need PowerPoint 2007 to be installed on the computer.  Since i'm using 2010, the application slammed me.  I've not been able to test it at all because of that.

Well, if it was ".ppt", it's not 2010.   2010 is ".pptx".

As i said, it need you to have PowerPoint 2007 (or earlier) on your computer.
If you have PowerPoint 2010 installed on your computer, it won't work.

If you really did opened a PowerPoint 2010 file from an older version, it might be because you have the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack installed on your computer, and i don't know if all the features specific to V2010 will be available, or simply stripped from the slides.

Yet, i've got the pricing for ppt2swfsdk.com, and it's a fair price.  If i don't get anything better, i'll certainly use that one.

I've discussed a bit with some other converter SDK provider, and most of them try to rip me off.  They can't give me a clear explanation of the licensing mode, and how much it would cost per server/per user/ or per conversion.  I prefer to not even mention the end customer name otherwise they might increase the price based on the name.
"Ok...  for the other average company it would cost 2000$ but for them it will cost 200 000$ plus 10 000$/year for support" lol!  Maybe they act like this because they don't know me and think that i work for competitors, but at the end you must trust people if you want to sell something.

We will use ppt2swfsdk.com.  Licensing is fair.  Higher than the end-user application, but not 100 times higher just because it's a "server"
