office word 2007

I want to open old Word 2003 documents in Word 2007. Vista did this originally when installed but somehow this operation has stopped occurring. When I open a Word 2003 document it eventually opens in Word 2003.
I have tried to re-point it to Word 2007 but it winds up going to 2007 Microsoft Windows Office Component and not the actual exe. file.
Where is the exe. file hidden?

Is Word 2007 a trial version?

The Word main executable is winword.exe and is usually found in C:\Program
Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12 for the default install on 64 bit
Windows versions (Windows Pro 64 and Vista 64). It is found in C:\Program
Files\Microsoft Office\Office12 for 32 bit Windows versions (default
install).

A repair install of Office should restore working links. Assure yourself
that your copy is not an expired demo version.

If Office 2007 came pre-installed on your computer, that usually means it is
a 60 day trial, then cough up the money.

Or, did you specifically ask for Office 2007 to be installed by the
Manufacturer?
If not, definitely a trial.

I believe so. My new Excel 2007 works fine. Word 2007 works fine also. It is just that when I click a file that was originally saved as a *.doc file is being opened by Word 2003 and I would like it to be opened by 2007 like the .docx files. It originally did but now for some reason does not.

Simple solution: reset the default file for .DOC to W2007.

Another simple solution: uninstall W2003

No it came loaded on the computer.

Then you have a Trial version. OEM,s only load Office as a Trial. Your Trial has expired and that is what is causing your issue

Solution #1: Tried that but the file still goes back to W2003 even though
the icon indicates it is W2007.

Solution #2: This means that I cannot email any W2003 documents to my
associates that don't have W2007. By removing W2003 my abilities would be
limited.

Problem #1: You're not quoting anything in your posts. That is a
huge problem for the majority of people reading, since the majority of
people in these groups use a news reader.

I have XP, 2003 and 2007 .DOC on my PC and have no such problems Word 2007
by default saves to 97-2003 Documents. Have no problem with e-mailing
different versions for Word DOC's using Word 2007
