Word docs open in 2007 instead of 2010.



I have Office 2010 on my laptop and PC. I also need to retain Office 2007
for instructional purposes. When I double click any type of Word file on the
laptop it opens in 2010 - great, that's what I want. However, double click
the same on the PC and it opens and starts to instal 2007 - don't want that.
I have used 'Open with...' the default shows the 2010 icon but the PC still
wants to start up 2007. I can open files in 2010 but only after having first
started 2010 from the programs menu.

Any ideas?

Both versions share some resources. You therefore need to ensure that both
versions do not re-configure to grab those resources when started, then
associate the documents with which Word version you require as default.. See
http://www.gmayor.com/Toolbars_in_word_2007.htm with reference to the
registry entries (Word 2010 is Word 14.0) and see
http://www.gmayor.com/Document_Not_Found.htm which shows how to associate
the documents manually - again substituting Office14 as appropriate..
