Document description: How To: Enable Open in Word/Open in Excel buttons.

If Microsoft Word/Microsoft Excel are installed after installing the software then the Open in Word/Open in Excel buttons may not be available. To resolve this problem, from Start | Run, type:


Within the registry editor, navigate to the key:


In the right hand pane of the view, find the entries WordCompat and ExcelCompat, double-click on each of these and set the values to 1. The changes will take effect the next time you run the software.

(The software is setup like this because strangely it takes a long period of time to detect whether Word/Excel is installed.  Checking each time the software is launched would slow down the start up time of the software, so rather than add a few seconds to the load time each time it only checks on installation.)
