What is the problem with them ?
Can't open them ?
Did you try ...
right click at xls or xlsx > Open With > Choose default program > select Microsft Application Virtulization DDE Launcher
or Start button > Default Programs > Assoiciate a file type ot protocol with a program > under Name, scroll down to xls > look across to the right > Current Default should be Microsoft Application Virtulization DDE Launcher
If not, click Change Program ... > select Microsoft Application Virtulization DDE Launcher > click OK when done.
Hope that will help.
( FYI ... xls and xlsx will be opened in Excel window.)
The problem for .ppt, .xls, and .xlsx is all the same: the default program isn't set to be what it should be, with the result that the files fail to open when I double click them, and I cannot find a way to properly set the default program.
What is Microsoft Application Virtualization DDE Launcher? It also does not show up on the list of options for default programs - is there some way I can navigate to this?
