I haven't figured out a way to automatically open Excel files with the Office 2010 Beta version of Excel. When I change (in Win XP Folder Options/File Types) the .xls extension to open with the Microsoft Office Client Virtualization Handler (CVH.exe), it defaults to Word.

The only way I can open an Office file other than a Word document is to first start the app and then open the file.
