Bug using OpenOffice and Microsoft Office together

ewald.janker

Hello,

 

I searched in your FAQ for my problem but could not found a solution.

 

The problem:

I have installed OpenOffice together with Microsoft Office 2019 both with newest versions. I’m working with Windows 10 Home 64-Bit newest Version.

If I use Windows menus in order to call a new Word document, I cannot find Microsoft Word: 

  

 

I searched for the reason and finally found the reason: installing OpenOffice a registry entry reserved for .docx will be changed by OpenOffice to “OpenOffice.docx”:

 

Normally (if no OpenOffice installed) this entry contains “Word.Document.12” as I can see in my notebook with Windows 10 Home 64-Bit and Microsoft Office 2010).     

 

 

What to do for a solution?

 

 

Thanks for your help and sincerely

Hi Ewald,

select a docx document in WindowsExplorer (single click in the document
name) and select "Open With..." (öffnen mit...) via context menue (right
mouse button click) and select MS Word to open this document with it.
Wihin this dialog there is a checkbox where you can select to always
open documents with this file extention with whatever application you
select.

When you installed OpenOffice within the setup program you selected to
open MS Office documents wit OpenOffice

Kind regards, Joost
