Can't assign Access 2010 as Default for file

July 26, 2011 at 11:46:59
Specs: Vista Home Premium, SP2
I have Windows Office Professional 2010 (includes Access 2010) installed on a Vista Comupter. We have a database, created in Access 2003, that was made with the proprietary extension .11 rather that .mdb. I am attempting to set Access 2010 as the default program to open the .11 file extension database files.
I go to the directory, right click the file, Select the "General" tab and in the "Opens with:" line select the "Change" button.
I then select "Browse" and navigate to >Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office14/ and select "MSACCESS.EXE" and click the "Open" button.
I am returned to the "Open With" window with both "Recommended Programs" and "Other Programs" displayed. ------ Microsoft Access is NOT displayed.
What am I doing wrong?
If I am doing nothing wrong, is there a problem with running Office 2010 on a Vista machine with Service Pack 2?
I would appreciate any help.

What happens if you open Access and try to open the file from within the program?
