Default File won't launch

When I double-click a file on desktop, Excel says it can't find it. It opens
fine if the program is running. I've tried to save it under different names,
and that doesn't matter. Can you help?

Default File won't launch

Sometimes one of these works when you're having trouble with double clicking on
the file in windows explorer:

Tools|Options|General|Ignore other applications (uncheck it)

--- or ---

Close Excel and
Windows Start Button|Run
excel /unregserver
then
Windows Start Button|Run
excel /regserver

The /unregserver & /regserver stuff resets the windows registry to excel's
factory defaults.

Maybe one of these will work for you.
