I have installed Word 2002 onto a Vista pc and it has not set Word 2002 to
open .doc files by default. The file association menu does not show
WINWORD.EXE as an option. Normaly you can browse to WINWORD.exe and set the
association manually, but this simply does not work (WINWORD.EXE never
appears as an option in the file association menu). The only way to open .doc
files is to open the Word application first. There are no other Office apps
or versions of Word installed on the PC.
