At lest 2-3 times daily PowerPoint crashes on me with below Generated Event:

Faulting application name: POWERPNT.EXE, version: 14.0.6009.1000, time stamp: 0x4cc1a4ed
Faulting module name: oart.dll, version: 14.0.7015.1000, time stamp: 0x51ccabed
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x0001fbf5
Faulting process id: 0x3874
Faulting application start time: 0x01ced4bb88f5e6a3
Faulting application path: C:\PROGRAM FILES (X86)\MICROSOFT OFFICE\OFFICE14\POWERPNT.EXE
Faulting module path: C:\PROGRAM FILES (X86)\MICROSOFT OFFICE\OFFICE14\oart.dll
Report Id: 704aeb83-40b0-11e3-a774-2c41388a1210

Open in new window


Does not matter the file mostly.  Though the larger the file size the more often it will crash.  Event while running in PowerPoint /a mode the crashes still occur.

I have ran SFC and it returned: Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

Are you doing anything specific when it crashes?

Head to File | Options | Addins. What's listed there?

Also, do this, http://www.pptfaq.com/FAQ00952_How_to_install_a_TEST_printer_driver.htm

Mostly At the time of a Save.
however also when: Changing slides.
Changing large amounts of text's Font, Color, Highlight, Size or BIU.  on a single slide.


in the Com-addins DMPowerPoint2010 is a plug in that captures the save and open functions of office to save them into a collaborative suit and document management system.  Enabling or Disabling it does not have an effect on the frequency of the crashes.   I have noticed that oart.dll is almost always involved.

Well, I'd definitely try the printer driver as I suggested above. I know it sounds crazy, but it actually does often work.

I'd also disable all add-ins as a test.

Also in PPT head to File | Options | Advanced and tick the box to disable hardware acceleration. And I'd try turning down hardware acceleration in Windows if you can.
