Does it work by opening Word, then opening the document from there?

If so, make sure .docx is associated with Word, which is located here as "WINWORD.EXE":

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14

Is there any error report message?
If he gets the one from MS official site, he may reinstall it for another time, it seems that the doc. doesnot connect with the program effectively.
