Cannot open Word attachments in Windows Mail

I am running windows vista, but can not open Word attachments in windows mail. I get the message: "this file has no program associated with it. Create an association in the set Associations Panel.

If I'm going to start by default/programs/associated with a file type, it is show as .doc files being associated with Word. What is the problem?
Phil

Yes, Microsoft Office Word is responsible.

Save it in a folder of your choice. See if you can open it.
If you are able to open it this way, then you need this:

  • Cannot open attachments in Windows Mail

    Can not open attachments [such as wmv.] in Windows Mail
    Unless I first save the attachment and then open it from the location of the saved file. After that attachments can be opened in WM until the next time I start the PC. Then I do the routine save - open again.
    Help, please
    Thank you

    Try this, instead of open Windows Mail on the part of the shortcuts to quick launch or desktop, or in the Start Menu, start it from "start |" All programs | Windows Mail' and see if your attachments open.  There is a recurring problem between Internet Explorer 8 and Windows Mail that causes this and many people have been able to resolve the question drinking from Windows Mail in this way.  These discussions have a lot more information:

  • Cannot add an attachment in Windows Mail

    original title: Windows Mail problem

    When you try to add attachments in Windows Mail, it gives me an error message "cannot find attachment", why

    How you try to add an attachment?  Try to compose a new message and then drag the file on top of the new message window to attach or use Insert | Attachment.  They both fail?  Make sure that your antivirus software is not interfereing.  See www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3

    You could also try to compact and repair the database of WinMail to see if this has an effect (see www.oehelp.com/WMUtil/).

  • Saved attachments in Windows Mail do not appear in the actual file

    In Vista, using Windows Mail, attachments are saved to disk hard aren't really there.  It does not matter what type of file it is.  When you click on an attachment to a paperclip icon and navigate to the folder on the hard disk where you want to save the file, the file seems to save successfully.  But, when you go to this real folder through 'Computer', the file is not really there.  If you go back to the email and save it, it says that the file already exists (although looking at the file in a Windows Explorer window, it is not there).  If you save multiple attachments from Windows Mail to a folder, the record is displayed all files in this folder... but none are really there.  What is the problem here?

    My only guess is that some 3rd party program is screw things upwards.  You can check for antimalware, antispam, or antivirus software and see if that might be the problem (seewww.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3).  In OE, we suggest set you up a new identity, but it is not so easy in WinMail.  I guess you'll just to workaround it.  To ensure that the economy of attachment is selected under Tools | Options | Security also.

    We tried.  This is even if hidden files are marked to show or not.  It does not matter where you save the file in... it will not be displayed in a regular Windows Explorer window, or be seen by other software (for example, whether a file you want to import into a program).

    If you double-click the message to open it in its own window and drag the attachment to a Windows Explorer window, it save successfully and can be seen and used as usual.

  • MMC cannot open the file C:\windows\system32\WF.msc

    When I try to open the Action Center, I receive this message. MMC cannot open the file C:\windows\system32\WF.msc

    Thanks for posting the question in the Microsoft Community forums.

    According to the description, you get a message of error 'mmc cannot open the file C:\windows\system32\WF.msc' when you try to open the center of the Action.

    d. click Add/Remove snap-in software component
    e. Select Windows Firewall with advanced settings, in Add Remove snap-ins windows
    f. click Add (clicking ok does not make any changes)

    Method 2:

    If you are able to use the settings of the firewall through MMC, then scan your computer for corrupt system files.

  • Cannot open a new browser window

    I have a few users who have problems connecting to Discoverer on new PCs. They use the Internet Explorerer 8. They are able to get to the login, but when screen connect achieving (or go) they get an error: "cannot open a new browser window. Make sure that you don't have a pop - up disabled for this site".

    Of course the first thing I had to do was disable popups blocker all together. But they still have the error (even when they restart their PC). Other than that, is there something that I miss in how they must configure IE8? I'm personally used to use IE6 at work and do not know much about the setting of configuration for IE8.


    Thank you!

    Check if you have a toolbar (like Yahoo, Google toolbar)
    These toolbars have their own Blocker for pop-up windows.
    You must disable the pop-up blocker also with the blocker IE.

    Thank you
