we have Office XP and Office Viewer 2003 (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) on the same Server.
I doubleklick on an .doc file and Office XP Word open it, but I like to have that the 2003 Word Viewer open this document.
If I install Office XP first and then Office Viewer it has the same effect :(
How can I tell the Office Viewer Setup that the Extension will be open with Office Viewer 2003 and not Office XP?
Thank You and greetz from Cologne.

You can check by changing the Shell ->opencommand for .doc file extension in the Classes Root registry key.
Have you already tried this?? Hope it helps.

Hi slb,
thx. I know that. But we have maybe 13 Terminal Server and the problem is not only with the .doc extension.
The best way is if the Office Viewer 2003 Installation would set the whole associations.
