I tested ros 0.4.8-dev-179-gb3172ae gcc dbg against
Microsoft Powerpoint Viewer 2010 from rapps (german download link)
and used the following sample file
It properly will open up the ppt via file-open-dlg and show page 1-4 without issues.
when navigating to page 5 the process will crash reproducibly (unhandled exception).
I took a backtrace with break on first chance exceptions of the crash:
Looks like it's related to EMF-files (gdi32) somehow.
Interesting detail: Without break-on-first-chance the process will immediately crash when navigating to page5. With break-on-first-chance and replying 2x "cont" the process survived and displayed page 5 afterwards. page5.png
