I have installed Microsoft Office Pro 2010 (32 bits) on Windows 7 Pro 64 bits . Everything works fine except that Windows won't associate *. xlsx files to Excel, while all other XML files are being associated to the right program. What can be done?
Click Start > Run > type "regedi" and press Enter.
Expand the following keys:
For each of these keys there is a string value named "doc_auto_file
" or "xlsx_auto_file
- For the first entry put: "Word.Document.8"
- For the second entry put "Excel.Sheet.12"
- Close the registry and restart your PC.
Thanks to leper21
for this tip.
