LibreOffice works great with Windows XP. If I create a document using
LibreOffice, 'Save As' Word 2007/2010 .docx, then go to My Documents and
double-click on the saved document, LibreOffice Writer will open the
Not so with Windows Vista SP2 + all updates.
When I create that same document in Windows Vista, then go the Documents
folder and double-click on the file, all it does is bring up a 'Save As'
dialog box and prompts me to save the document as a Word 2007 Macro-Enabled
Document (by default, but I can choose anything from the list). If I do
that, then double-click on the newly created 'Macro-Enabled Document' (or
whatever), it brings up the 'Save As' dialog box again, and wants me to save
it again, and again, and again. It won't open the document unless I
right-click on it and choose to 'Open With', then navigate to LibreOffice
Writer, each and every time, regardless of whether I chose to 'Always use
the selected program'.
I'd like to be able to double-click on the newly created Word document and
have it open normally just as it does with Windows XP. What do I need to do
to correct this behavior?
As an aside, I have also installed the Microsoft 'Compatibility Pack for the
2007 Office System' update, but that does not affect LibreOffice in the
least with Windows XP, it shouldn't with Vista either. -kd5-
