Windows 7: MS Word not in default file associations list

21 Sep 2010   #11

Windows 7 Professional 32-bit

Getting there.....I can now associate Word as default program. When choosing a file to open, it now opens Word but not the file and a red X box appears saying "There was a problem sending the command to the program"

Thanks so much for your help here....but I'm afraid I have run out of time for today....hope to find you still online tomorrow....

Yes, that is a problem i've come across before, please search these forums and also google because IIRC, it has been solved for many people.

If I'm not around tomorrow, somebody else will be.
