When trying to open a Word doc in windows 7 Document Library error: "Problems sending a command to the program". How can this be fixed. I can't open any Word documents out of Document Library.

I retrieved all my docments from an external hard drive onto a new computer with windows 7 by dragging and dropping. I used Windows XP before.

See if this helps.

Right-click on the Word icon, choose Properties, click on the Shortcut tab, click on Advanced and see if the "Run as Admin" box is checked. If it is, uncheck it.
