  • When you run an object model command that contains the InsertFromFile method to insert a slide into a presentation in PowerPoint 2013, the media content (such as picture, audio, and video content) is lost in the inserted slide.

  • When you copy and paste some content that contains an ActiveX control to a presentation slide in PowerPoint 2013, you receive the following error message:

    An error occurred during creation of ActiveX control.
