    When I open a .DOC file that came as a mail attachment in Windows Mail, I see
    the Open / Cancel dialog box. When I select Open, the following error is

    This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this
    action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel.

    I already have Word asssociated with .DOC files. The same file opens
    correctly when saved to disk, and then viewed.

    I had the same problem with powerpoint files, could open them if I saved
    them to the HD but not directly from the email, had to add an 'open' action
    to the list & associate the correct application for viewing powerpoint
    presentations in WLM & that did the trick, that 'open' action should already
    be listed though.
