Word Document File Association Error

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I am having a hard time changing the association settings on my Windows Vista computer with MS Office 2007 installed on it. Before, no Word document file was being associated with any programs but right now it just suddenly associates itself to other programs such as Adobe and Media Center.

Word documents works normally as it suppose to be when I tried to check and does a test file on the Word application. All emails cannot be opened in Word but it does in Media Center. I tried my best to change the settings for associations but the computer won’t do it. It does not include Word in the list of file associations. When I tried to browse the link for other programs it has WinWord, I clicked it and a program box will pop up but the window will instantly disappear.

Can you please help me on how fix this?

Word Document File Association Error


You may have changed the default program that should be used to open the word documents to another by mistake, and therefore  you should change back to the ms office word application.

  • Just locate one application that is associated with ms word and then right click on it.
  • Choose the open with option.
  • In the window that opens, choose ms word from the list of the applications.
  • Check the box that requires that you use ms word as the default application open all related documents to the one that you are opening right now.
  • Click OK to open the document.

The default application for opening the documents that were having problems will be changed to ms word.
