<?php

// Extensions des fichiers autorisés à être téléchargés, à modifier. Sans les points.
$exts_allowed = array ( 'xml','txt' , 'htm' , 'html' , 'phtml' , 'xhtml' , 'dhtml' );


//----------------------------------------------------
// MESSAGES D'ERREUR
//----------------------------------------------------

$msg [ 'no_file_to_dl' ]      =  'Aucun fichier à télécharger.';
$msg [ 'file_doesnt_exist' ]  =  'Le fichier que vous tentez de télécharger n\'existe pas.';
$msg [ 'file_not_allowed' ]   =  'Vous ne pouvez pas télécharger ce fichier.';

//echo "*".$_GET [ 'file' ];




$_GET [ 'file' ]="OUTPUT.xml";
//$_GET [ 'file' ]="PBE_STAT_CRM_MASK_STEP1_REELLES_MASK_P2_V1OKREELLE_V3.xml";
if ( isset ( $_GET [ 'file' ] ) )
{
      $file = trim ( $_GET [ 'file' ] );
     
      if ( @ file_exists ( $file ) )
      {
            $infos = pathinfo ( $file );
           
            if ( in_array ( $infos [ 'extension' ] , $exts_allowed ) )
            {
            @ header ( 'Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary' );
            @ header ( 'Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="' . str_replace ( ' ' , '_' , $file ) . '"');
            @ header ( 'Content-Length: ' . @ filesize ( $file ) );
            @ readfile ( $file );
            }
            else
      {
                  echo $msg [ 'file_not_allowed' ];
            }
      }
      else
      {
            echo $msg [ 'file_doesnt_exist' ];

You can have this file open directly in powerpoint by sending the appropriate content-type header. Leave the file as .XML but then add this to your header statements

@header("Content-type: application/vnd.ms-powerpoint");

Look here for additional MS mime types

I have tried that (add what you said at the beginning of my xml file) but it is not OK


@header("Content-type: application/vnd.ms-powerpoint");
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<?mso-application progid="PowerPoint.Show"?>

Can you please explain further more please?
