I used Wordconv.exe to convert some .doc to .docx files, and I need to do the same to convert .ppt to .pptx files.

I have a many I would like to convert using the command line, so using Power Point program to do them one at a time is too slow.

I need ppcnvcom.exe to do this, which I believe should be in my OFFICE12 folder, but it is not. I have searched on the internet and have found 50,000 websites wanting me to download their "registry fixes", etc, but nowhere where I can download the original ppcnvcom.exe file.

Anyone know where I can get it? I have licences for Office 2003 and 2007, but only 2007 is installed on my dev machine.

You can't open Power Point, then file > open the ppt file, then "save as" pptx? – Moab Apr 8 '11 at 2:15
It depends how many files need converting I guess. :) 'ppcnvcom' allows you to do it on the command line so it's quick for batch conversions. – 8088 Apr 8 '11 at 6:52
@Moab Yeah, except that I only need to do it to about 20,000 files ;) – Ozzah Aug 22 '11 at 3:52
Thanks, but I had found a solution to his project a few months ago :) – Ozzah Aug 22 '11 at 6:20

You can find ppcnvcom.exe in the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
