Office 2010 under Windows 7

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

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.

Using 2 versions of Mac Office 2004 (Japanese and English). How do I set the default for which version my machine uses to open office files?
I using 2 versions of Mac Office 2004 (Japanese and English). How do I set the default for which version my machine uses to open office files? It would of course be better if MS allowed users to switch menu languages within the program just as Mac does with its OS and associated software. But since that is not the case, I have had to purchase install the English version of Office 2004 (at great expense both monetarily and memory wise). When I open files already on my computer it always opens them with the "default" version of Office 2004 which is in Japanese. I can't seem to ...

Mailbox Manager #7

The problem I know have is that we have moved Exchange 5.5 to a Windows 2000 Server and during t...
