Subject: Decrypting PPT files

Hey all,

    I'm trying to decrypt a password protected a powerpoint 97-2003 PPT
file. I've successfully used on Word documents, but this is
the first .ppt file I've tried and it errors out with:


'ascii' codex can't decode byte 0xd9 in position 2: ordinal not in


Going through Magnum's test documents on the openwall wiki I don't see any
ppt files in there. Are ppt files supported for JtR. I know I can use
Elcomsoft, (it loads in aoprt), but I'd really like to use JtR instead.
