    Question File Associations In OE? [FIXED]

    O.K.,
    I have a friend that has an issue that is driving us crazy.
    Perhaps we are overlooking something, but we did a lot of checking.
    When we open a .pps attachment in outlook express 6 we get a message that there is no file association with that file and that we should go to the folder options and associate a file to open that extension.
    We checked it and the association is with Microsoft Powerpoint Viewer or Microsoft Powerpoint which is the correct association.
    We had downloaded before the "Powerpoint Viewer" and it has confirmed installation.
    IF we drag or save the attachment to the desktop and click on it, it will open up normally with the Powerpoint viewer.
    It just will not associate with Powerpoint when we try to open up the attachment directly from the e-mail.
    Unchecked is the "Do not allow attacvhments that may contain a virus" box in options in OE.
    Any Ideas???

    Running Windows XP Home SP2
    OE 6

    Thumbs up Re: File Associations In OE?

    Yes that was the answer,
    Seems only to cause an issue with the "Viewers" and not the full installed Office...

    Thanks for your reply, you are among the few that hit it on the head...
