|Got an old problem with Excel 2003 on my desktop running under XP Pro.|
Normally when you double click the *.xls file Excel should open it automatically, but, once again, Excel starts and no file is opened.
When I click in Excel : File --> Open --> *.xls the file opens without any problems.
As I said, I had this problem before (before I upgraded to IE 8.0, maybe coincidence?) and the remedy was to open an Excel file, then go to Tools, Options, General and remove the checkmark from "Ignore other applications" but this remedy doesn't work anymore. Any ideas?
