.doc files not asssociated with Word 2007


N

Nathan Hopper

After I upgraded to Office 2007, when I try to open a .doc file by clicking
that particular file, or from an email attachment, it is not recognized as a
word file. When I click on the file directly, it brings up a window to
assign a program for that file and the only option it lists is notepad. When
I click on an email attachment it says " Application Not Found". However if
I open word first, then use File>Open, I can open the file fine. How do I
get Word to automatically open the file or email attachments?

From Start, Run, type in

winword /r

to make sure that Word is correctly registered in Windows. If the documents
still don't open, then it suggests a third party add-in or AntiVirus is
preventing the correct action. If you have Kapersky, go to their support
site and download the fix.

If you don't have Kapersky, then it may be a bad thirds party legacy add-in
causing this. You will need to ID and remove or update the add-in.

It has to be AV or an incompatible add-in. I don't know of any other reason
for double-clicking not to work correctly. NAV is another AV that causes the
same bug: just disable the Office Plug-in in NAV.
