File Associations Lost for Office 2010 Documents
Posted on 2012-04-09
One of our users cannot open Office Documents (Excel, Word) through double-clicking the file. The icon on the desktop appears "blank" and double-clicking results in a "Which Program Do You Want To Open With" dialogue. Strangely, Reader is the only program that appears available.
Browsing to the correct program file: (Program Files (x86)\Office 14\Excel.exe) does not work. Repairing & Reinstalling did not work.
If she opens Excel / Word first and opens the file through the program, the file will open properly.
She is using Office 2010 and Windows 7. Thank you.
