Word Perfect (wpd) file association issue with Windows 7

I am having a terrible time trying to assoicate a word perfect document (wpd extension) in windows7 using office 2010.   I can get to the "assoicate a file or prototype" windows in windows 7...BUT...when i move down to ".wpd" and click <Change Program> I do not know where to go to there...I WANT TO OPEN A WPD DOCUMENT IN WORD 2010.  In XP, it was a snap to just find "word.exe" and the association worked.  BUT, now, alas, in Windows 7 it is hidden somewhere...if you can help me I would really appreciate it.  Many thanks in advance

Go to Control Panels --> Programs --> Default Programs -->Set Associations.
Select the .WPD extension and click the CHANGE button.
In the OPEN WITH window, click on the BROWSE button.
Navigate to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\ and double-click on WINWORD.exe
In the OPEN WITH window, Microsoft Word will now be listed in the available applications.  
Highlight, ensure that the check box for "Always use this program..." is checked, then click OK.

That should do it for you.
