I have an Excel file on my desktop. Whenever I double-click on it, I get the
error message "Windows cannot find 'C:\users\owners\Desktop\eric.sources.xlsx'
It doesn't matter if I save it under another name, or even pasting into a
new file.
I am able to open it by opening Excel first and then using the "open"
function.

Hi Eric,

Are you able to open the Excel file by right clicking on it and click
Open With and selecting the Excel .exe program?

Thank you for responding. I just tried it, and no, I can't. Excel opens, but
not the spreadsheet itself. Can you help?

I have the same problem. I don't think the abovementioned link gives any
solution. I have fully updated anti-virus software (AVG) and disabling this
did not change anything. I have the same problem with Word-files (Office
2003) as with Excel-files. In my case the problem was first solved disabling
UAC.

After the september bunch of vista-updates I got the same problems.
Has anyone found a solution meanwhile?

In addition since then my Outlook2007 runs a slow folder-repair-process
everytime I open it.

Hi. Have you tried unchecking the "Ignore other applications that use Dynamic
Data Exchange (DDE)" option, in Office Menu - Excel Options - Advanced?

That works for me.

Ricardo.

This may work for Excel. It does not work for Word 2007 (problem in
documents folder and with e-mail attachments).

Thanks...Chris

Hey Ricardo, the DDE option did the trick. Diamond geeza.
