I need to convert a PDF file to PPT file. Are there any programs which can do that?

I don't need anything fancy. I just need to have contents of each page turned from PDF to PPT. No hyperlinks, no animations or anything similar.

The desired result can also be achieved without proprietary tools. If you have GhostScript installed, you can convert your PDF presentation into a set of JPG images using:

gs -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -dSAFER -dGraphicsAlphaBits=4 -dTextAlphaBits=4 -sDEVICE=jpeg -r300 -sOutputFile='page-%00d.jpg' YOURFILE.pdf

Then, with the plugin for OpenOffice/LibreOffice create a presentation where each image fills exactly one slide. You can also easily keep the order of the pages by choosing the plugin option "natural sorting".

I have written an article on the topic in my blog, unfortunately in German only.

    use -sDEVICE=png16m for text without jpeg artifacts; use LibreOffice's Insert>Image>Photo Album to insert them all.

There are a bunch of utilities and helps available on the web to do this, including:

You can also take the very cheap, manual route of manually copy/paste each page of the PDF file to a slide in Powerpoint.
