Unable to open Excel 2007 file by double-clicking...



OS is Vista Home Basic. I've done repair installation but didn't fix the
problem so I remove Office 2007 completely and reinstalled back but still
didn't fix the problem. Apparently, when double clicking Excel 2007 file
the cursor will change from arrow to ring-like icon for a split second then
nothings happens. Take note that old version of excel file opens fine
through double-click.

Any ideas?

Try deleting the "File Type Association" for the XL 2007 files(.xlsx, xlsm,

Then double click on a XL 2007 file. It should prompt you to select a
program to associate(open) the document with.
