Microsoft Powerpoint 2002 recently crashed while I was working on a poster, which was almost done and unsaved. The document recovery opened up automatically when Powerpoint automatically restarted, with two available files: the original version of the file (which was just a template) and the recovered version, saved with AutoRecover minutes before the program crashed. That is obviously the version of the file that I want, but when I click on it and tell it to open or Save As, nothing happens. Rather: all that happens is, on the bottom left, for a microsecond it says "Microsoft Powerpoint is opening the file" but the message and the blue progress bar simply then disappear. The original version of the file opens just fine, though that does not help me. Any advice?
