This is the exact same problem we are having with email links. The pptx format exports emails links that work, but if you export a ppt file from v7 of Presenter the links do not work. The drawback again with pptx, is the formating of the text etc in the exported version, you vcan hardly read some if it and it is simple Arial size 12.
If anyone has any ideas? I think this is bug which should be reported.
I have an issue where links don't work - but it's only links in text boxes that have formatting.
So if I add a text box, put some text and a link it, and publish - the links work fine.
If I then add a shadow effect to that text box, and then publish ... the links stop working.
I've spoken with Adobe Platinum Support about this issue. The "workaround" is to not format the text box.
My (only slightly improved) workaround is to create a text box with no text in it. Apply all of your formatting (like shadow) to it. Then create a text box with no formatting, and add your text to that. Put the unformatted text over the formatted text box.
It's not an elegant workaround as it creates extra work, but it's the only way I can think of to get links working in what looks like a formatted text box.

You can try the following :
1)Try on a new PPT rather than coming fro PPTX to PPT
2)Insert hyperlink after presentation(PPTX) has been saved as PPT
3)Select those hyperlinks in PPT in Powerpoint and right click and select Edit hyperlink and click OK in that window and then publish .
Hey It's Work!!!. Thank Man..
Note that Support is wrong. Embedded links to HTTP address (URLs) or pages within the same 'stack' do work, at least in my (and others') experience.
Once issue may be if you're running the published presentation locally, watch for the Flash Player security warning/dialog...you may have to 'Allow' it for the hyperlinks to work... Otherwise, I defer to the other suggestions here for workarounds.
Yes, Support did get back to me and gave me instructions for changing the security setting on Flash. Following are the steps:
- Go to http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager04.htm l
- Select Global Security Settings panel from the Settings Manager list.
- In the picture select the radio button for Always allow
- Click the down arrow next to Edit locations… and select Add locations
- Click the browse for folder button and navigate to your C:\Users\Documents
After doing these steps my hyperlinks worked after publication.
