How to XLS start old Excel 2003


I

Igor G.

I have in my company installed Excel 2003 and Excel 2007.
Excel 2003 is here because some addins not suport newer version.
How to, when I click to .XLS file automaticaly start Excel 2003, NOT 2007?

I try with Control Panel... Folder Options... File Types but allways after
double click, XLA file was started in Excel 2007.
Maybe some change in RegEdit?
Thanks.

Since 2007 has decided it wants to be the default, de-register 2007 and
re-register 2003

Close Excel first and On the Windows Taskbar

Start>Run "C:\yourpathto2007\excel.exe" /unregserver

See the space between exe and /unregserver.

Then register 2003

Start>Run "C:\yourpathto2003\excel.exe" /regserver

This process should make Excel 2003 the default for opening files.

You may not have to unregister 2007 first but I err on the side of
caution<g>
