I have a presentation in Powerpoint. But for some reason I can not open it on the laptop. Writes that: "Unable to read the structure of ..." It's very strange, because the version Power Point, on the laptop and PC alike. (2013) What could be causing this problem?

On the PC, open without any problems. But I need to be opened by the presentation on the laptop. The problem still is that the version of the file on the PC I already deleted and emptied the Recycle Bin. That is, at the moment there is only a copy on the laptop and a flash drive.

I hope for your help. Thank you.

In myopinion there are several reasons that could cause this.

First -this is a faulty flash drive.

The second- error occurred while copying.

The third -the presentation contains files (such as images) format which does not allow toopen the file.

Try torestore the file to your PC and copy it again to the laptop, but using adifferent flash card. Restore, you can use this program: http://www.powerpoint.recoverytoolbox.com/

What happens if you copy the file on the flash drive back to the PC it has been deleted from? This is the obvious step to take in order to determine whether the file is corrupt or there is an issue with the installation of powerpoint on the laptop.

Flash drives are of very variable quality so it is somewhat likely that if this was the method of file transfer, the file itself could be corrupt, especially if the key was removed without first dismounting it.
