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 document perfectly.
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-
