Powerpoint 2013 files from Windows 7 not opening in Windows 10

Hello,I upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 ~5 days ago. Since then, Powerpoint 2013 opens/works fine, and saves/opens new files.

But any Powerpoint 2013 file that I work on on a Windows 7 machine or that a colleague sends me from a Windows 7 machine appears with an error message. "Powerpoint found a problem with content in xxx . PowerPoint can attempt to repair the presentation. If you trust the source of this presentation, click Repair." If I click 'repair', then it simply tells me it cannot open the file. (To be explicit - if I then open the file on a Windows 7 machine, it still opens fine.)

Troubleshooting:
- I have tried to repair the file - nothing happens
- Both versions of PowerPoint are PowerPoint 2013
- This applies whether pptx or ppt file
- I have tried 'quick' and 'complete' repair without success

Can anyone help? Thanks in advance!

Suggestions only.......

1. Check to make sure you have all PowerPoint updates installed.

2. Repair Microsoft Office 2013.
Go to Programs and Features > right click at Microsoft office 2013 > click Change > click Repair.

I'm having the same issue with PowerPoint files. I get the error code but can't seem to fix it.

OK
Powerpoint found a problem with content in xxx
I am wondering if all this might be tied to permissions.
Can you examine the security permissions in the properties of one of the files you are having trouble with.
Who is the owner?
Does your specific useraccount have full permissions to the file?
