I am configuring our first Lenovo X1 laptop for a VP. It is running Windows 7 Pro (64 bit)
I removed the Office 2010 trial that came installed without activating it and have completely installed Office 2007 Pro. The install went without a hitch and I have ran service pack 3 and all of the available updates and patches.
I am having an issue with Excel not opening .xls files. If I try to open it I get the pop-up to choose a program to use but Excel isn't an option. Same results when I right-click change to/open with etc. I also tried going through the control panel to the file options but got the same result.
I can open the file from within Excel but if I save or close it I still can't get it to recongize the file format and open normally.
Does anybody have any suggestions on what might be causing this and/or how I manually browse to Excel to choose it to open the file with?
