    MS Office Document Imaging (Office 2003 SP3)

    We use MS Office Document Imaging to edit TIF/TIFF files, of which we have a lot. I set the program as the default program on our workstations for opening all TIF/TIFF files (File Types>Associations). I have one workstation that continues to return the error, "....tif is not a valid Win32 application." I have done the following in trying to troubleshoot this issue: 1. I had to actually add TIF and TIFF as new file types since they weren't showing in the list (I've never seen that before???) 2. Opened the actual Document Imaging Program and selected File>Open to have a TIF open within the application. Works fine this way. 3. Tried to right-click and select "Open With" - returns the same error as above. 4. Repaired Office 5. Reinstalled Office.
    I'm stumped. Any help would be appreciated. The workstation is an XXP.

    Just a guess:
    - Start Windows Explorer.
    - Select Tools | Folder Options...
    - Activate the File Types tab.
    - Select TIF in the list of extensions.
    - Click Advanced.
    - Select Open in the list of actions.
    - Click Edit...
    - The command line probably ends in %1.
    - If there are no quotes around %1, add them, so that the line ends in "%1"
    - OK your way out.

    Hans, for all of the files types except TIF and TIFF I have an Advanced button. There is no Advanced button for those. Is it because I had to add them to the file type list myself? Any other suggestions?

    Is there a Reset button instead of Advanced? If so, try that. Do you get an advanced button after that?

    Yes, there is a reset button. I had tried that earlier but all it does is take the association back to Windows Picture & Fax Viewer. I need it to stay with Document Imaging.

    Try setting the command line for the Open action in Advanced (after clicking Reset) to
    <code>
    "C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedMSPaperMSPView.exe" "%1"
    </code>

    This opens Document Imaging on my PC.

    Once you 'press' the reset button you should get an advanced button. Then push the advanced button and you should be able to change the open and print actions.

    In MS Office Document Imaging, if you go to Tools - Options, then the Other tab, there is a reset button labelled "Open all TIFF files with Microsoft Office Document Imaging".

    Does that help?
