I have referred the below link.

Please clarify the below point.

Is it possible to show Powerpoint using ActiveQt widgets?

On windows, if you have a powerpoint installation, and program against COM interface (ie ActiveQt) then, yes, you should be able to do that.
You will need to find a tutorial or book on API exposed by/for powerpoint, though.

(Can't help you there, sorry. I am running linux.)

I didn't worked ActiveQt related widgets before. Can you please tell me whether the Powerpoint which is viewing in ActiveQt can be editable and saved in a location?

Yes, it can. You can control it through the exposed COM (ActiveX) interface.
