windows associations Microsoft Vista

I have received an attachment to an e-mail in Outlook Express with a .doc suffix.
I cannot open it because it states that there is no programme acciated with it for performng this action.
However I have no problem open attachment on my old Windows 98 PC.
Please advise if there is anything different about Vista in this case
Thank you

Suggest have a look at this click here which is a comparable query.

You seimply need to 'associate' the .doc file extension with Word, (or any other programme of your choice). Try Taff's suggestion, or mine, either should work for you. HTH.

Hi. Unfortunately, the originator of the thread link I gave above has also started a duplicate thread on another forum (very confusing), so you might also want to keep an eye on that as there's some good points in it, click here. HTH.
