I completed this registry hack (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2636670
) on a Windows 7 64 bit system with Office 2010 32 installed so the end-user could open each Excel spreadsheet in a separate window. The good news is that yes, indeed, every spreadsheet opens in it's own Window. But now when she tries to open her files from either explorer or from short cuts on her desktop, she get an error indicating the file cannot be found. It gives a sequential error for each level of the path. She can open them with the File Open option within Excel but does not wish to do so.
This support questions talks about what she is seeing: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/207574
I'd prefer to keep the Excel functionality, does anyone know how to resolve the file opening situation? Or a better way to force each Excel 2010 spreadsheet to open in it's own window?
