Solved: Cannot associate Office 2010 (beta) with Office file types

Q: Solved: Cannot associate Office 2010 (beta) with Office file types

My MS Office files have generic icons, and when I open them, Windows asks me which program to use. Office 2010 isn't even on the list. A trial version of Office 2007 came with my laptop. I downloaded the Office 2010 beta, then uninstalled 2007. Since I uninstalled the old Office, all my Office files are no longer associated with Office, and there seems to be no way to remarry them. Office 2010 (beta) doesn't appear in the default programs control panel. The only way I can open those files is to open Word/Excel/etc, and File>Open. I feel like this should be simple. Any ideas?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Solved: Cannot associate Office 2010 (beta) with Office file types

Did you uninstall 2007 after you installed 2010?
If so you messed things up and you need to do a repair. Open Word, then the Office button, and then Word Options.
There on the Resources area, run diagnostics and do a repair.

Note:

After installing the latest security updates on two Windows 7 machines the file associations for Office 2010 beta reverted back to Office 2003 (which is also installed). In order to fix this (since I prefer that the Office 2010 apps be the default) I ran the "change/repair" option from Programs & Features in the Control Panel.

A:Fix for Office 2010 beta file associations

You can also go into "default programs" and change them in that dialog. Its less time consuming than a repair install.

After much messing around I have discovered that if you use Windows 7 'Associate a file type or protocol with a program' to set default programs for file types, it breaks the File Types selection within a given program (in my case Microsoft Office Picture Manager) and you are no longer able to use the program itself to set file types only the Windows 7 function. You can tick/untick file associations all day long within Microsoft Office Picture Manager and nothing gets associated/unassociated. The File Types option is basically broken. I have also noticed this occur with 7-zip which actually causes a more serious issue. By default .zip is not listed in the Windows 7 list of 'Associate a file type or protocol with a program' window but is listed if you associate .zip with 7-zip's own file association option. BUT if you then subsequently use windows 7 to re-associate .zip with Windows Explorer, the .zip vanishes (because by default is is not listed), breaks 7-zips file association options and you can no longer associate .zip files with 7-zip, EVER. Basically I am curious as to why Windows 7 own file association options would break software's own internal file association options so badly to the point they are essentially useless and if there is a fix. I even tried completely reinstalling Microsoft Office and removing all references of it within the registry, no luck. Its not a big deal but I just found it odd that a fundamental piece of Windows 7 would harm the integrit... Read more

Okay, I've never posted on anything like this before so bear with me please. I've got an issue and it's driving me nuts because I can't resolve it. I'll try and give a description of what I did. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I purchased a new Dell computer (Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit) that came with a trial version of Office 2010. I had previously purchased an Office 2010 Pro so I wanted to install the full version on my computer. When I did, I had both versions installed, so I uninstalled the trial version. That's when I think my problem arose, but I can't say for sure that it didn't exist before that because I hadn't even looked.

Here's the problem:
When I'm in Windows Explorer looking at my files, my Excel and Word files (.doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx) show up with an improper file type description. Instead of saying "Microsoft Word Document" or "Microsoft Excel 1997-2003 Worksheet" (or whatever they're supposed to say) the simply say "DOCX File" or "XLS File". Not only that, but the icons don't look right either. They sort of look right, but they're smaller and sort of greyed out (Except the .docx icon is just a white page with lines object).

The strange thing is, is that ALL my other Office files show up with correct descriptions and icons etc. (.ppt, .pptx, .csv....etc - ALL of them!)

What I've tried to fix it:
I uninstalled all Office Products and then reinstalled Office 2010.

I am of pensioner age and struggle with technical jargon. Thanks lamarque

A:Office 2010 Beta 64 bit Problem

It would appear that the file associations for Office2010/word are messed up - this is a little worrying as it is a standard part of the install process to set these to default to open office documents with office.

I assume that you can manually open a file from within word without issues.

Quick method for setting file associations (doc file as example)

Right click on a .DOC file in windows explorer.
Choose the "open with ... " option (if the option does not show you can Shift-Right Click)

If Word is shown in the list of suitable applications,ther is an additional set of "Other " which is normally not shown (arrow on right to display) select this and make sure that the "Always use" option is checked.

If the Word option is not present use the browse to locate winword.exe on the system drive, (normally c:\program files\office ...), select this and OK out of the dialog. Again check the "Always use" option

Thats it

Hi there
I've been playing around with the Office beta 2010 -- only EXCEL at the moment

It seems to have a nicer interface -- I'm glad the hideous Office 2007 blob has gone

The start menu is much nicer - and as always if you don't like the large ribbon you can get rid of it with CTRL+F1. CTRL+F1 again brings it back.


Anyway here's the start menu in 2010 for EXCEL. (I changed the background in options to BLACK - I prefer it to the default white one).

Seems to run old 2003 / 2007 version spreadsheets with macros etc etc OK.

(I'm testing this in a W7 pro X-64 Virtual machine -- I don't want to screw up any of my actual work documents while testing this).

I am hoping the language packs will apear soon for a proper test.

So far looks good MS.

I downloaded the Office 2010 beta trial a while ago, anyways close to when the program expired Click2Run failed, or failed to load, I don't remember the exact error message. It wouldn't let me access the program at all, and I got a stupid pop-up every time I turned on my computer saying Click2Run failed to initialize or something. So when the thing expired I went out and decided to buy the program. Anyways, I tried to uninstall the beta version since it would not let me simply upgrade.

It wouldn't uninstall, errors with click2run cause that. So I manually uninstalled it, removing all traces from my computer (or so I thought) I removed everything. I even ran the RipOutOffice 2010 program, as well as the uninstall tool from MS. It no longer shows up on my control panel, and I can't find anything in my Registry to hint that it is still there.

Anyways, I still can't install my program. It tells me I need to remove all traces of Office 2010, but I can't find any!

If the regular method failed then try the Office Uninstaller see whether you could remove using that mostly left over files used to remove then you use this Tool.

It looks like MS has not included an easy way to backup your pst files in Outlook 2010.
Does anyone know how to do this?
 

A:Office 2010 Outlook Beta Backup

I have ALWAYS backed up my PST file manually in all versions.

It's just a file, make sure Outlook is not rumming (or has not run since last boot) before doing it.

The Microsoft utility is a download (not part of the original install) in Outlook 2007. Have you tried for a download for your version

I downloaded the 32-bit version of the Office 2010 Beta, because I figured it would run just fine in 32-bit mode on my 64-bit machine, but when I tried to install it, I got this error:






Quote:
Error 1935: And error occurred during the installation of assembly component {DCDF7794-7F8F-4F41-8CAD-95128804065E}. HRESULT: 0x80070005.


I'm downloading the 64-bit version now to test that one, but I'd appreciate knowing exactly why this happened - if anyone else out there knows.

A:Error With Office 2010 Beta Install

Solved the problem by installing the beta into a folder I created called 'Microsoft Office 2010', instead of the default 'Microsoft Office' folder. Don't know why it worked, but it did.

Hi,

About 2 months ago, I deleted two user accounts from my Administrator account. I later activiated the Guest Account.

The next time I started up my computer, I was unable to log in to my account and got the following message:

User Profile Service can't load the user account.

Or something along those lines. Since then, I have been using the Guest Account with Administrator Pivliges.

A few days ago, when I tried to recify the poblem by deleting the Problematic User Account and Replacing it I had several problems:

- Unable to Create New User Account
- Unable to delete user account
- Unable to Rename User Account
- Unable to Change Password on User Account

When I tried to create a new user account, It said that the name was invalid, when it wasn't.

I have tried serveal tutorials, and was recommened to try System restore. When I tried this, I was not allowed to Carry Out the Restore.

Also, Today I downloaded Office 2010 Beta. This was working fine. I was having some problems with Outlook Connector, so I unistalled all 2010 Beta Programs and attempted to redownload Office 2010 Beta.

Once the file had downloaded, I started the Download and got the following Error Message which said something about a Q: Drive. Upond further investigation, I discovered that I now had a Q: Drive. When I attemped to acces this, I got another error message which said that Q: Drive was inaccesible or something like that.

Can anyone help me? I've tried everyth... Read more

Hi, I was wondering whether it is possible for me to get the whole installer of Office 2010 Beta, not the 2MB size setup that will still require a slow install and download of Office 2010 Beta. I want to download the whole installer even if its 500 MB in size.

It says on the download page that, "if you are not using high speed Internet connection, please download Office 2010 Beta instead". I don't know how this is supposed to be. I just want to download the whole installer even if its 500 MB in size.
