How do I ensure that word documents display using word viewer in Internet Explorer and in Word when selected from Explorer.  The same for excel files with excel viewer in Internet Explorer and Excel from Explorer.  The platform on which the web site is being run is Windows 95, Office 95.

It depends on the client setup which app is used to view the documents (for example IE embed Word documents using OLE which is setup on the client).

You can not control from the web server.  Sorry :-)

If you just mean on your PC, this is an install option when you install office.
