    WLL file extension. (Word 2000 and 2002)

    In the registry on the system having Office 2000 and in the registry in the
    system having Office XP, I notice that the WLL file type is registered with
    an identifier of Word.Addin.8. I guess that's a holdover from when Office 97
    was on each system.

    Are Office 2000 and Office XP supposed to install/use a WLL file extension?
    If so, then I may need only to change the 8 to 9 and 10 on the respective systems.

    Should I just delete the critter in each registry?

    Note: WLL = Word Link Library

    Hi Howard:
    I'd leave it alone. I have Word 2000 on my home computer & have never had any other version on this computer. I also have .wll listed as a Word.Addin.8. I have noticed other references to earlier versions in the registry. e.g. HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftOffice8.0ExcelAu toSave...despite the fact that I've never had Excel 97. I have several utilities that clean up the registry, but I wouldn't want to delete a few entries that I wasn't sure of.
    Cheers,
