Unable to open Word doc up in FrontPage to edit

Whenever I try to open a Word doc up to edit in FrontPage, the below error is received. This happens on any word doc I attempt to open and other people are NOT having the same problem. Any ideas how to resolve?

I'm confused by your question a little.

Basically the procedure is the following:

1. You have a word doc within your web site.
2. Double clicking on the word doc will open Microsoft Word, where you can edit it.
3. Saving or closing the word doc then re-imports the new version back into FrontPage.

So, you don't actually edit the document "in" FrontPage. FrontPage can only edit web files (html, asp. etc.)

Can you be more specific as to what you're trying to do, and maybe I can be of more help...

Once I have FrontPage up and whenever I attempt to double click the word doc within FrontPage is within I receive the error provided.
Okay - got to Tools > Options > Configure Editors.

Make sure "Open web pages in the Office application that created them" is checked.

You do have Word installed, yes?

Yes, I have word installed and I will let you know if your other comment works when I get to work. Thanks
BMANDEPAuthor Commented:
OK, I verified that box was checked...any other suggestions?
Not at the moment - let me look further into this, as I've never seen this come up before. Are you able to open up other office files, like excel or powerpoint?
Try this. Select Tools-Options and click the configure Editors Tab. Type Alt-N to add a new extension to the list. Place the doc extension and point it to your word file. This may solve the problem as it tells FP specifically what to do with doc files.

I had another issue on this PC where McAfee wouldn't install. I re-installed Windows Installer to resolve that and it resolved the Front Page issue as well. Thanks guys for your input.
No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
I will leave a recommendation in the Cleanup topic area that this question is:
