Office 2010 under Windows 7

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Thomas Schuster, Sep 11, 2010.

  1. Hi all,

    I just installed Office 2010 as an update to Office 2007 on Windows 7
    64-bit professional edition.

    Office 2010 works quite fine, however there is something wrong with file
    associations. Whenever I open an office document I end up getting a
    dialog that tells me it will prepare installation of Office 2007 instead
    of opening the document in 2010. So far I tried to reset the file
    associations in the explorer to the newly installed Office version.
    Unfortunately that does not change anything.

    Can somebody tell me how to fix this issue?
    Thanks,
    Thomas

  2. There are Office forums @
    http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/categories which might
    be a better place to ask about this. I did exactly the same thing on my
    computer, Office 2007 to 2010, but never encountered any problems.
