HP PCs - An Excel, Word or PowerPoint File Does Not Open In Office 2010

When you try to open a Word document (.doc or .docx), Excel spreadsheet (.xls or .xlsx), or PowerPoint presentation (.ppt or .pptx), the file does not open. You may see one of the following error messages:
  • This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel.
  • <file name> not a valid Win32 Application
These problems can occur when the association between the file and the corresponding application is missing or incorrect. Follow the instructions for the version of Windows on the computer to resolve the issue.
Resolving the issue in Windows 8
To resolve the issue, uninstall extra versions of Office 2010 and repair the remaining Office 2010 installed on the computer. If the file does not open after performing those steps, change the app associated with that file type. Expand the following section to
Resolving the issue in Windows 7 or earlier
To resolve the issue, uninstall extra versions of Office 2010 and repair the remaining Office 2010 installed on the computer.
For more information and to find instructions for the version of Windows on your computer, see the Microsoft support article, A Microsoft Excel, Word or PowerPoint file does not open because of incorrect file associations.
