Winword 2003 in Vista
When I double click a word file to open it in Vista, the program gives me an
error that it cannot find the file. I then need to open it through the
Winword drop down menu. Any ideas on a fix?

Try repairing Word:

1. Start Word 2003.
2. On the Help menu, click Detect and Repair.
3. In the Detect and Repair dialog box, click to select the Restore my shortcuts while repairing check box.
4. Click Start to start the Word 2003 repair process.

Thank you. I did that already and it didn't do anything. Any other ideas

Re: Winword 2003 in Vista
This might be a file association related problem. 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 the file type from the list box.
5. Click "View file association report"
6. Copy the contents of the report and include it in your reply.

I do have Office 2003 installed, and will do a registry comparison once I get the file association report from you.
