Office 2007 MIME types in IIS

I registered Office2007 MIME types in IIS(5) but I still have a handful of IE6/7 clients that are prompted to save the file as a zip when downloading docx, xlsx, etc..  Any idea what needs to be changed in the client's browser - possibly a plug-in or something?

Hi,

what MIME tyhpes did you set them to?  Maybe those clients do not have the office 2007 extensions installed.

Meverest,
I only had one client that this wasn't working for but it is now working for him.  I think all he needed to do was reboot - not sure but he says its working now.
Thanks.

perhaps the office update had been downloaded over wsus and needed that reboot to make it work?

Cheers!
