Office Compatibility Converter 2013 or 2010 to 2003

I've googled for a Microsoft Office converter pack in order to open a PowerPoint 2013/2010 file in Office 2003.

Downloaded several versions that were labeled (on web page) as "2013"... after installing, however, it indicated it's a 2007 to 2003 converter.   So, apparently, I haven't been lucky finding such converter pack.

Recommendations where I can find the converter EXE file?

Thanks,
EEH

The 2007 converter should work for 2010 and 2013 files shouldn't it?

Usually, I'd do the conversion at work... however, I won't be back until late next week.

Any recommendations for converting a Microsoft PPT template (downloaded from their site) to 2003 format?

Please follow the instructions below:

Ensure your system is up to date by installing all High-Priority/Required updates on Microsoft Update (required for Microsoft Office XP and 2003 users).

After installing all High-Priority/Required updates with Microsoft Update, download the Compatibility Pack by clicking the Download button above and saving the file to your hard disk.

Double-click the FileFormatConverters.exe program file on your hard disk to start the setup program.

Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the installation.

To remove this download:

On the Windows Start menu, click Control Panel.

Select Add/Remove Programs.

In the list of currently installed programs, select Compatibility Pack for the 2007 Office system and then click Remove or Add/Remove. If a dialog box appears, follow the instructions to remove the program.

Click Yes or OK to confirm that you want to remove the program.
