When attempting to unzip a Power Point presentation Win Zip produces the following error:

"Error "Location Path": missing 3 bytes in Zip File - attempting to process anyway"

Windows XP Professional SP3
Win Zip  8.1 this is what we're licensed for
Microsoft Office Professional 2003

Steps taken so far:

Tried uninstalling and reinstalling WinZip
Tried repairing Office
I can open this on my computer without an issue

A very tiny application: 7-zip (free and fast) at < http://www.7-zip.org/ >.

Does 7-zip also give error?

(Opinion only: Recommend using 7-zip rather than WinZip.)

I'm attempting to open with 7 Zip and it's saying that an attempt was made to move the file pointer before the beginning of the file.

Any other ideas about the WinZip issue?

It appears that the zip file is corrupted. Could you try zipping the presentation again and try unzipping it. You could also try to compress as 7zip file and see what happens.
