    When I try to open a .doc or a .wps file attached to an email, I get an error
    info. When I save the file and try to open it, all is fine. The same used to
    be the case with pdf, but that has miraculously repaired itself after an
    Adobe-update. I have Vista Home Premium and the email program I use is a
    webmail thing. With XP it worked fine and also with another PC I have with
    Ultimate and another protetion program. So why not here?Grateful for any
    useful tips.

  2. Hi bitla50,

    Which version of Office do you use? Meanwhile, try this:

    1. Download FileExtInfo.zip from here:
    http://windowsxp.mvps.org/fileextinfo.htm

    2. Unzip the utility and extract the files to Desktop.
    3. Double-click "FileExtInfo.exe" to run it.
    4. Select ".DOC" from the list box
    5. Click "View file association report"
    6. Copy the contents of the report and include it in your reply.

    Thank you. I solved it more or less by downloading the viewers for word end
    excel, but I do not understand why it does not work. I do not have Office on
    my laptop with preinstalled Works. Works uses different extensions, but is
    able to open and save .doc and .xls files. I tried, it works. So I indicated
    to use those programs for opening attached .doc and .xls files, the programs
    open all right, but then it says that the file cannot be read because it is
    either open already or damaged. By the way, I have the same problem with the
    ..wps extension, a textdocument created by Works.
    When I open the attachments on my PC, where I do have Office, all works fine
    so the files are not damaged. What is happening?

  4. but I do not understand why it does not work

    It's a file associations problem. Windows Mail specifically looks for "shell\open" verb in the registry for the file type, and returns an error if the file class is missing the "open" verb.
