I believe that to open a ppam file you need an add in.  Have you installed the add-in?
Do you have the PowerPoint 14 Type Library installed?

A .ppam is usually just a file with macros.

However, if someone just changed the file extension from, say, .pptx to .ppam, PowerPoint won't open it.

But you've said you can open the same file with v15.25? Hm. Where does the PPAM live on your machine? PPT can be particular about where such files are housed.
