PowerPoint2007 and PowerPoint2003

Hello! Friends:

My OS is Windows Vista, and I am keeping both copies of the OFFICE2007 and
OFFICE2003 in it. My preferred version is still OFFICE2003.

When I opened my *ppt files from the Windows Explorer, it always opened by PP
2007 instead of PP2003. I tried to change it through: ControlPanel/Default
Program
and then Office2003/Office11/PowerPnt.exe, it still doesn't work.

Any ways to change it to PP2003 when open from Windows Explorer? Thanks.

The following steps will make PowerPoint 2003 associate .ppt/.pps/.pot file
extensions with
itself while keeping .pptx/.pptm/.ppsx/.ppsm/.potx/.potm for PowerPoint
2007:
1. In Windows, select "Start" | "Run..." menu item to bring up the Run
dialog box.

2. Type in the following command in the "Open" box:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\PowerPnt.exe" /regserver

3. Click OK button.
