Why to Convert
If you are a C++ developer, you may need to integrate XPS to POT conversion feature inside your C++ applications. XPS is a fixed document format developed by Microsoft, while POT is a presentation file format used by Microsoft PowerPoint. Converting XPS to POT can help you to create presentations from XPS documents.

By using Aspose.Total for C++, you can easily convert XPS to POT in two simple steps. First, you can export XPS to PPTX by using Aspose.PDF for C++. Secondly, by using Aspose.Slides for C++, you can convert PPTX to POT.
Aspose.Total for C++ is a comprehensive package of all the C++ APIs offered by Aspose. It provides an easy and efficient way to convert XPS to POT. It also provides features to create, edit, and convert documents and presentations.
C++ API to Export XPS to POT
Get Started with C++ File Automation APIs
Install from command line as
nuget install Aspose.Total.Cpp or via Package Manager Console of Visual Studio with
Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .
// load XPS file with an instance of Document class auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(u"template.xps"); // save XPS as PPTX format doc->Save(u"PptxOutput.pptx", SaveFormat::Pptx); // instantiate a Presentation object that represents a PPTX file SharedPtr<Presentation> prs = MakeObject<Presentation>(u"PptxOutput.pptx"); // save the presentation as Pot format prs->Save(u"output.pot", Aspose::Slides::Export::SaveFormat::Pot);
Change Password of XPS Document via C++
In the process of rendering XPS to POT, you can open a password protected XPS and also change its password. In order to change the password of a XPS file, you must know the owner password of that document. You can load password protected PDF document with Aspose.PDF for C++ by specifying its owner password and use ChangePasswords method to change the password.
// load an existing XPS Document auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(L"input.xps", L"owner"); // change password of XPS Document doc->ChangePasswords(L"owner", L"newuser", L"newuser"); // save the document doc->Save(L"output.Doc");
Add Images From Web in POT File via C++
After converting XPS to POT, you can also add images from web to your output document. Aspose.Slides for C++ supports operations with images in these popular formats: JPEG, PNG, BMP, GIF, and others. You can add one or several images on your computer onto a slide in a presentation. This sample code in C++ shows you how to add an image to a POT file
// instantiate a Presentation object that represents a POT file auto pres = System::MakeObject<Presentation>("output.pot"); // get slide auto slide = pres->get_Slides()->idx_get(0); // initialize Web Client auto webClient = System::MakeObject<WebClient>(); // get image data auto imageData = webClient->DownloadData(System::MakeObject<Uri>(u"[REPLACE WITH URL]")); // add image auto image = pres->get_Images()->AddImage(imageData); // add picture frame slide->get_Shapes()->AddPictureFrame(ShapeType::Rectangle, 10.0f, 10.0f, 100.0f, 100.0f, image); // save updated file pres->Save(u"updated.pot", SaveFormat::Pot);

What is XPS File Format?
XPS, short for XML Paper Specification, is a file format created by Microsoft to represent fixed-layout documents. XPS files contain the content and print settings of a document, making them suitable for preserving the layout and appearance of a document across different devices and platforms.
The XPS format is based on XML (eXtensible Markup Language), a widely used markup language for structured data representation. XPS files encapsulate document content, such as text, images, vector graphics, and annotations, in a structured XML format. This enables easy interpretation and rendering of the document’s visual elements.
XPS files are conceptually similar to PDF (Portable Document Format) files in that they both aim to provide a reliable way to present and share documents while preserving their formatting and layout. However, PDF files have gained broader support across different software applications and hardware devices, making them more widely accepted and compatible.
To view and work with XPS files, Microsoft provides an XPS Viewer as part of the Windows operating system. Various third-party applications and tools also offer support for opening, creating, and converting XPS files. However, compared to PDF, the range of software and hardware supporting the XPS format may be more limited.
What is POT File Format?
Microsoft PowerPoint Template Files POT format is a file format that is used to store PowerPoint templates. A POT file contains a collection of slides that can be used to create a PowerPoint presentation. POT files are typically created by PowerPoint users who want to share their templates with others.
