    Office 2007 Compatibility Pack Problem

    Hi All

    We have Office 2003 around our campus and have the Office 2007 Compatibility Pack installed so users can open 2007 documents in 2003.

    The problem we get is that the file association for .docx is registered with moc.exe which is the Compatibility Pack rather than Winword.exe. It then doesnt open and throws up an error. Selecting Winword.exe as the application to open the file fixed the problem.

    Is there a better way to fix this instead of asking the users to right click the file to select the application?

    Thanks

    You could use group policy preferences to set the association for you?
    Its free and from MS and provides lots of extras for GP to deploy.

    Hi
    To use GP preferences you need the client installed on each PC. Its free and listed on windows update/WSUS
    Once its installed you need a 2008/2008 r2/vista/w7 pc to actually set the preferences I am sure. When you open a policy in those client you should see a "Preferences" category under "Policies"
    Just have a hunt around in there.
