I am looking for a solution that I can use to allow a user to upload a ppt file to my server and then extract the images of the file for placement onto the machine.
I need to be able to control the process with php and then also write code that will allow me to place references to file location in a database for script use in showing the images.
Does your app allow this?
Please download PowerPoint Converter product from following web page to try, you can call PowerPoint Converter Command Line (pptconv.exe) from your PHP code to convert PPT file to image file easily,
please download the trial version of PowerPoint Converter Command Line to try, if you encounter any problem, please feel free to let us know.
Thanks for your reply.
I would love to try it.
However, as I am not a command line guru, I would like to ask if you have any examples of how to use php code to call your app.
Please by following steps to try again,
1. Please download EXEShell COM Library from following URL,
Please refer to following page about EXEShell COM Library,
2. Please use following code to call pptconv.exe from PHP or ASP code,
Set comEXEShell = Server.CreateObject("exeshell.shell")
comEXEShell.RunCommandLine "Administrator", "123456", "C:\pptconv.exe -$ XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX ""C:\in.ppt"" ""C:\out.swf"""
Set comEXEShell = Nothing
$PdfCreator =new COM("exeshell.shell") or die("Cannot start PdfCreator");
$PdfCreator->RunCommandLine("Administrator", "123456", "C:\pptconv.exe -$ XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX C:\in.ppt C:\out.swf");
