Screenshot of "Open with" in MS-Explorer for a Powerpoint file
My configuration: WinXP SP3, LibO 3.3.4, French locale, MS-Office 2003.
I installed LibO, but MS-Office files are open by default with MS-Office. However, if I want to open them with LibO, in Explorer, right click on file > Open with > LibreOffice +module concerned with the file.
It works fine with Word and Excel files (Writer and Calc proposed). However, with Powerpoint files, it is Draw which is proposed to open them (cf. screenshot attached). The final result is OK because finally it is Impress which opens the file. But for a first time user, it may be confusing to see Draw trying to open Powerpoint file.
It sounds like an easy hack.
DUP of or related to "Bug 39963 - Presentation: .ppsx (and others) not associated to LibO"?

I do not remember exactly. I will make some test if possible.

I was not aware of which version number to put, when I tested with several: the oldest or the most recent. Now I know I have to indicate the oldest. Thank you for the link.
I uninstall LibO 3.3.4 and installed 3.3.0, 3.3.1, 3.3.2, 3.3.3 and then 3.3.4 and now everything works fine: Open with proposes now Impress.
There should be a problem in my previous installation.
Sorry for the noise.
