How can I open a mdi file please?

  Harosie 12:58 03 Apr 2009

I have some documents saved in office 2003 on a windows xp computer that I have now put on my new computer running office 2007, windows vista. The documents are saved as mdi files and I found I was unable to open them. I went in to control panel, office 2007, and installed the microsoft document image writer which I thought would solve the problem, but I'm still unable to open the documents as they are trying to open in adobe acrobat 9. Please can anyone explain to me how to make these documents open correctly as I can't work out how to make them open. I have tried the default programmes list but don't know what to change them to.

Go to windows update and download Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack Service Pack 1.

It might help my daughter had the opposite problem we have office 2003 and the computer where she works has 2007 and she could not use the info on her USB stick to do work at home untill we downloaded this.
