Windows 7: Outlook 2003 not opening attachments

Outlook 2003 not opening attachments

For the last two years I have had no problems using Office 2003 in Windows 7. Now the Outlook program will not open any files created by Office 2007 or 2010. It did before, but now comes up with a error message as it tries to install an unknown program - "an error occurred when sending the command to the application" and then shuts down. A further message then shows indicating that WDVIEWER.cab is not available. So I downloaded and installed this but it is still not found.
Any ideas?

It has only done this after the latest batch of Windows 7 update last week.

None of the suggested solutions solved my problem. I solved it by downloading and reinstalling Microsoft Word Viewer latest edition. But first I had to uninstall it. After that I have had no problems
