    Hello --

    When I double-click on a .doc file I receive the following in a dialog box:

    Program Not Found
    Windows cannot find regexrename.exe

    This program is needed for opening files
    of type 'DOC File'.

    Location of regexrename.exe:

    If I start Word first and then open the doc file, the file opens OK.

    I recall installing regexrename.exe, which I used for bulk renaming of

    Does anyone know how it might now be "related" to .doc files?

    Thanks for any help.

    Assign Word to open `.doc` files. Rt\click on a `.doc` file, open with,
    and tick the box to always open this with.
    At the moment the files are assigned to open with regexname.exe.

    Thanks. I see no check box for "always". Is that a Win XP feature?

    In Explorer > Tools > Options > File Types
    doc files are set to open with Word.
