There is no way to get Act 9 to work with Office 2007 - I have seen it work for a short while but then randomly stop working.  Version 9.0.1 has Vista support but not Office 2007.

Your options are to downgrade Office to 2003 or upgrade Act to 2008 / 2009.

Assosiating the file types will not fully work because When Act installs it adds registry entries into all of the Office Keys (Word, Outlook and Excel) - If it does not see a compatible version of Office this does not get done.  Even if you did change your version of Office you would then need to reinstall Act to make these entries - this was an issue in the older versions of Act which now has better solutions.
