Here is  Microsoft's solution:

(A bit easier I think)

Copy and paste the following into a .reg file.  Import it.


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Word.Document.8]
@="Microsoft Word Document"
"EditFlags"=dword:00010000
"BrowserFlags"=dword:00000008

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Excel.Sheet.8]
@="Microsoft Excel Worksheet"
"EditFlags"=dword:00010000
"BrowserFlags"=dword:00000008

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\PowerPoint.Show.8]
@="Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation"
"EditFlags"=dword:00010000
"BrowserFlags"=dword:00000008

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Visio.Drawing.6]
@="Microsoft Visio Drawing"
"EditFlags"=dword:00010000
"BrowserFlags"=dword:00000008

Just a note....

Those registry key class values that end with a number (ie. .8) are the version numbers for Office.  Check your registry for the versions you show - you may need to duplicate lines for each version should you want them all to open.

It's unlikely some of the old versions would still be available on the Internet, so I would start with what's above and if you hit one that doesn't open, figure out what version the file is in and make the necessary reg additions for that version.

According to Microsoft, the correct value for Excel is 9 not 8. (see link above)
i.e.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Excel.Sheet.8]
@="Microsoft Excel Worksheet"
"EditFlags"=dword:00010000
"BrowserFlags"=dword:00000009

Note that older file versions are referred to with other indew than 8, i.e.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Word.Document.6] for Word 7.0

Making a .reg file makes it easy to make the change in several machines.
Also, making a version with the original values, can be handy if you want to reset to original settings.
