Microsoft Office Picture Manager - Office 07 - Broken File Types

Question: Microsoft Office Picture Manager - Office 07 - Broken File Types

After much messing around I have discovered that if you use Windows 7 'Associate a file type or protocol with a program' to set default programs for file types, it breaks the File Types selection within a given program (in my case Microsoft Office Picture Manager) and you are no longer able to use the program itself to set file types only the Windows 7 function. You can tick/untick file associations all day long within Microsoft Office Picture Manager and nothing gets associated/unassociated. The File Types option is basically broken. I have also noticed this occur with 7-zip which actually causes a more serious issue. By default .zip is not listed in the Windows 7 list of 'Associate a file type or protocol with a program' window but is listed if you associate .zip with 7-zip's own file association option. BUT if you then subsequently use windows 7 to re-associate .zip with Windows Explorer, the .zip vanishes (because by default is is not listed), breaks 7-zips file association options and you can no longer associate .zip files with 7-zip, EVER. Basically I am curious as to why Windows 7 own file association options would break software's own internal file association options so badly to the point they are essentially useless and if there is a fix. I even tried completely reinstalling Microsoft Office and removing all references of it within the registry, no luck. Its not a big deal but I just found it odd that a fundamental piece of Windows 7 would harm the integrity of software so easily and seemingly irreversibly! I have made the assumption that perhaps because Office 2007 is fairly old and probably geared up for Vista that perhaps older softer like this, just isn't compatible with Windows 7 file association. Any thoughts or fixes?

Answer: Microsoft Office Picture Manager - Office 07 - Broken File Types

I don't believe it has anything to do with Office 2007/ Picture manager I use it myself,
I do not use 7-Zip but that seems the likely bug,
Windows handles Zip folders just like any other folder so 7-Zip is something I don't understand why people need or want it but I don't need any or need to make any Zip folders either
If your still having file association issues use this,

My wife took a video card out of her camera to upload pictures to Facebook. She cropped them and then tried uploading them to an album she just created (on FB). Our computer locked up, and then she received a file with all characters. None of the photos are on the card, and now it says it needs to be formatted. Is there a special place on our computer that these pictures could have moved to, or are we out of luck? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. We had some special family pictures that we really don't want to lose. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Not sure which forum is proper for this question.

I installed Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 a few months ago; now I've noticed that the "Microsoft Office Picture Manager" is being used when I want to access/edit/email my photos. Previous to this install, I used the HP Digital Imaging or the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, and it worked fine, but now I can't keep this MS Picture Editor from handling all photos; I went to Tools>File Types, and then unchecked every box, but still, when I go to Start>Photos, or to C:Document and Settings\Photos and double click an uploaded image, this crazy MS Office Picture Manager brings them up; the pics are tiny and cannot be resized and/or edited etc.

Does anyone know how to disable this MS Office Picture Manager? It is found at Start>Programs\Microsoft Office\Microsoft Office Tools\Microsoft Office Picture Manager.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Answer:Microsoft Office Picture Manager

Have you tried changing the default program that displays pictures?1. Open My Computer then navigate to the folder where your pictures are.2. Right-click on any picture then click Properties on the menu that comes up.3. On the window that appears, find "Opens with:" then click Change...4. Another window will appear. Click on Windows Picture and Fax Viewer then click OK.5. Click OK on the Properties windowThis would make all of your JPEG pictures show up on the default Windows Picture and Fax Viewer. If another picture shows up in the Microsoft Office Picture Viewer, do steps 2-5 on the picture.Do the pictures now show up in the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer?Feel free to post if you do not understand my instructions.

The auto correct feature doesn't seem to work on scanned documents.

I often scan documents and save them as .jpg.

Sometimes I scan a document (a bill or invoice or text) that has light text that's barely readable. I use the auto correct feature to darken the text and then save the adjusted document.

What I noticed today was that after I hit auto correct and the text darkens, when I hit save the text goes back the way it was.

Here's the kicker.

That happens with documents that I have scanned with my new Canoscan 9000F Mark II.

When I pull up documents that I scanned with my 5 year old Canoscan 8800F (an earlier generation of the same machine) the auto correct works the way it's supposed to.

Canon tech support is clueless and blames Office Picture Manager, of course.

Any ideas?

My MS Office files have generic icons, and when I open them, Windows asks me which program to use. Office 2010 isn't even on the list. A trial version of Office 2007 came with my laptop. I downloaded the Office 2010 beta, then uninstalled 2007. Since I uninstalled the old Office, all my Office files are no longer associated with Office, and there seems to be no way to remarry them. Office 2010 (beta) doesn't appear in the default programs control panel. The only way I can open those files is to open Word/Excel/etc, and File>Open. I feel like this should be simple. Any ideas?

Wow, if I didn't see on my computer that all the pictures from an online book were now in my computer, I would say this did not happen and could not happen but all of the pictures from an online book did somehow get captured into my computer.

I am baffled as to how this happened?

Now, I collect pictures from books that are online and that are in the public domain, into my computer but normally just one at a time.

I.e. just right click and save.

Now, I just saw that a book I was doing this w previously, somehow, unbeknown to me, ALL of the pictures - every single one - are on my computer????

I have searched help for Microsoft Office Picture Manager for windows but can't find anything.

Then, I was thinking somehow maybe it happened when I was in Sony Movie Studio 13 platinum but can't find anything in there either.

I know if you click on the globe you are suppose to be able to capture things from the internet but I can't figure out how to do that so I prob did not capture all the pictures from the book that way.

I would almost think I did not capture all of the pics from the book, that it could not possibly be done, but they are all in my computer?

Does anyone know how this happens?

It would be useful to be able to do this w other books.

I have to open various types of office files at once to mark students work. such as publisher, word, powerpoint, excel and access.

In XP i would just highlight all the files in the folder and press enter and they would all open. under windows 7 i can only open one type of office file at a time.

This is a pain when i have 3 publisher, 2 powerpoint, a spreadsheet and 4 word docs to open in the same folder.

I have searched under folder options but does anybody know of a setting to change to allow it?

I cant believe Microsoft could offer less functionality over xp in this aspect!

when i have about 8 docs per folder, 6 folders per unit, 2 units per student, approx 26 students per class and 6 different classes to mark (on this course) it really adds up!

Answer:opening different office file types together

I'll try to answer your question. Hopefully i've understood the question right.

1) Firstly, in Office 2007 (which i'm using), I can open a single word document, a single excel document and a single powerpoint document side by side (am currently not using Access). So that is not the issue.

2) I think what you want to do is to open multiple word docs, multiple excel files etc. simultaneously.

Open Word 2007, click on "View" tab at the top, then click on "Arrange All". You'll now find that you can open multiple documents, they will all show up in the task bar.

Also, if in Word 2007, you click on Office Button, Word Options, Advanced, then scroll down to the "Display" group and uncheck the "Show all windows in the Taskbar" box, then click on OK, you 'll find that only one window shows in the taskbar but the different open files are all arranged side by side in that window.

Try repeating this process in Excel, Powerpoint etc.

Answer:ms office picture manager renaming

Normally when one does a rename and there is a file already with that name, the rename is NOT allowed.

What "Picture Manager" are you using?

IF you were able to do this rename, then most likely the other file was replaced with the newly renamed file. This means they are gone forever.

We currently use Office 2007 and Office 2010 on our about 20 workstations. I'm looking to move to MS office 365 for hosted exchange.

I have Office 2010 Standard Open License Version installed on 7 XP Pro machines. We discovered, when trying to open a .tif file, that Document Imaging has been removed from Office 2010. I found and followed instructions in KB982760 from the MS web site. I got lots of parts of Office 2007, including Word, but still no Document Imaging. I tried going through Add/Remove Programs to add the feature; still no luck. Has anyone been successful getting Document Imaging from a previous version of Office to run under 2010?

Hi all

I am using Windows XP and office 2003. I am using Microsoft Office Picture Manager to view tif files.


1. I open a tif file.
2. I make an annotation change eg: Use the hightlighting tool to hightlight some text. Fine, no problem!
3. I save the document.
4. I close the document and try reopening it:

I get this error:

"The file selected is not a valid Microsoft Document Imaging file"

I recreated my Windows XP profile and this resolved the problem

That was two weeks the problem is back!

Any ideas?

I recently installed the Microsoft Office 2010 Beta, but this morning its intro screen stays stuck at "Starting Microsoft Office Click-to-Run." Googling it resulted in only two threads, neither of them having the answer.

I'm back to using Office 2007, by simply setting my Word and Excel documents to open by Office 2007 by default, but now my Word and Excel icons have become much less pretty, such as my Word icons becoming a very plain "DOCX" icon instead of the normal "blue W" icon. I checked, and the file types are still regular Word documents. Is there a way to get the pretty icons back?

Answer:Office 2010 Problems: "Starting Microsoft Office Click-to-Run" & Unattractive DOCX icons for Word documents.

Regarding changing the icon:
Go to either My Computer or Windows Explorer.
Click Tools, Folder Options, File Types tab.
Scroll down to the DOCX file type (file types are in alphabetical order), click on it one time to highlight it.
Click the Advanced button.
The "Edit File Type" screen appears.
There is a Change Icon button in the top right area.
Click the Change Icon button.
You should have other icon choices to pick from.
Side note: If you don't like any of those icons, you can always hit the Browse button,
and browse to where other icons are, (you can assign any icon to any file type that you want, it is a matter of personal preference).
Icons are found in .exe files (executables), some (not all) .dll (dynamic link library) files, and .ico files.

I've had Office 97 since 1997 and have been happy with it, however, since many documents I receive have been done on newer versions of Office, I decided to buy Microsoft Office Home & Student.  My other reason is that I have recently purchased a laptop that doesn't have a word processing program so I figured I would buy the newer version because the salesman assured me that I could legally run the new version on both of my computers, but Office 97 cannot be run legally on both computers.  Since I have thousands of documents done with Office 97 I am wondering how well these documents will open on the newer version?  The salesman at Staples said that the two programs would run along side each other and that I didn't have to delete Office 97 from my system.  Is this true?  And will they play nice together?  I also have more than a few documents on floppies that were made with Word Perfect in 1995.  Will I have a problem opening these in the newer version of Office?  And yes, I still have 2 floppy drives on my computer that I had built about 4 years ago.  I never have much luck putting stuff on re-writeable cds and then getting them to open again and do changes.  I have an external hard drive instead.  Thanks for your time.

Answer:Installing Microsoft Office Home & Student along with Office 97

Word 97 documents will open fine with Word 2007.  You can then decide whether to save it in Word 97-2003 format, i.e., .doc, or the newer Word 2007 format, i.e., .docx.   If you want, you can set Word 2007 to use the Word 97-2003 format by default.Installing two versions of Office on the same computer can be done but it's not recommended.  If you want to install both, do a careful read of this:

Ok, well up until yesterday my father was using Office 2000 with Microsoft binder for work. He just got a new laptop for work and he's got Office 2007 installed. From the looks of Microsoft's site it states that 'Microsoft Unbind is not included with Office 2007.' Looks like what I really need is Microsoft Binder from Office 2000. Is there a place I can download it (legally) or purchase it? He literally has thousands of binder files (*.obd) that he needs to be able to access. I've tried searching with nothing turning up.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Answer:Microsoft Office Binder (*.obd files) with Office 2007?

So further searching turned up that Unbind for Office XP/2003 is just a waste of time for Office 2007 and no point in looking further into that.

So then I found this:

Which seems to me if I can track down a Office 2000 disc I should be able to install JUST Binder 2000. Results show that it works along side Office XP/2003 so I don't see why it wouldn't with Office 2007. It would only be used to unbind old files, not create new ones.

If anyone has any other thoughts that would be great.
I'll look into what I wrote above tomorrow and post back with the results if need be.

This may be the ultimate deal breaker‏ for me.

I have successfully blocked Microsoft Office File Validation Add-in for about 5 years on XP, Vista, and Windows 7. It is an update that makes loading and saving Office 2003, or Office 2007, files take at least 10 times longer than without it, and often much more. It is agonizingly slow. I assume the delay is based on the size of the file, since they claim they are scanning for stuff other than legal Office information. I also wonder if it isn't kind of a penalty to try to get you to update to a newer version of Office in disguise as a security feature.

Windows 10, of course, has applied it under their forced automatic-update rules. If you select "Uninstall Updates", on the listing of successful updates, you get a list of many updates which have been applied. (Most of which are not listed on the previous page's list of installed updates. ??????) That particular update, however, is not listed even though it shows on the previous page.

In searching for any related posts, I see that there is an equivalent for Office 2010, so unless they made great improvements in the processing, a lot of other people are having degraded file activity on Office products as well. That is, unless they are used to it because they hadn't blocked the update in their previous OS.

If I have to put up with such degraded performance from my Office products I may just revert to Windows 7.

With cloud being emphasis these days, should you continue using Microsoft Office or should you switch to cloud based office automation products?
Both types have their own benefits. Microsoft Office has a well known interface that is easy to use. We all have been using it for years so we know what all features to expect and where. On the other hand, cloud based office automation products are free and store your files in the cloud - allowing you to retrieve the files from anywhere in the world. Unlike MS Office, the cloud based office automation products are often slow with limited features.
Of late, even Microsoft has been emphasizing on cloud and hence integrated its cloud based offerings into Office - 2010 and 2013. In addition to letting you store your files to local disk, you can store files directly to SkyDrive and/or Office 365 using MS Office applications. Thinking of the same and the possibility of having to switch to Ubuntu in future, I spent good time researching alternatives to MS Office and found some interesting ones.
One of the many benefits of MS Office is that it is very rich suite of productive tools and contains many applications - each focusing on a particular task. Almost all of the cloud based office automation products I found deal with only three types of tools: document or word processing, spreadsheets and presentations.
Until some time back, OpenOffice was the only alternative to MS Office. An open-source, cloud based service, it offered thre... Read more

Okay, I've never posted on anything like this before so bear with me please. I've got an issue and it's driving me nuts because I can't resolve it. I'll try and give a description of what I did. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I purchased a new Dell computer (Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit) that came with a trial version of Office 2010. I had previously purchased an Office 2010 Pro so I wanted to install the full version on my computer. When I did, I had both versions installed, so I uninstalled the trial version. That's when I think my problem arose, but I can't say for sure that it didn't exist before that because I hadn't even looked.

Here's the problem:
When I'm in Windows Explorer looking at my files, my Excel and Word files (.doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx) show up with an improper file type description. Instead of saying "Microsoft Word Document" or "Microsoft Excel 1997-2003 Worksheet" (or whatever they're supposed to say) the simply say "DOCX File" or "XLS File". Not only that, but the icons don't look right either. They sort of look right, but they're smaller and sort of greyed out (Except the .docx icon is just a white page with lines object).

The strange thing is, is that ALL my other Office files show up with correct descriptions and icons etc. (.ppt, .pptx, .csv....etc - ALL of them!)

Microsoft Office File Validation is a security add-in for Office 2003 and 2007. Office File Validation is used to validate that Binary File Format files conform to the Microsoft Office File Format. The user will be notified of possible security risks if files fail to conform to the format.

Help and Support:

I've just done a new install of Win 7 64 bit Pro and Office 2007 Pro.

This download appears to be getting pushed on us by MS

If I Google Microsoft Office File Validation Add-in there seems to be a lot reporting problems/issues, making computers run very slow, some say it is only for 2003 others say it's for 2003, 2007 & 2010.

I've just done a new install of Win 7 64 bit Pro and Office 2007 Pro. so I'm a little perplexed about this.

Any thoughts anyone.


Answer:Microsoft Office File Validation Add-in Important or not.

The updated Microsoft explanation page which explains its purpose in more detail here: Office File Validation for Office 2003 and Office 2007.

I'm pretty certain that this validation Add-in must be installed/activated in order for Office to continue to function properly...

I know this because I have had to reinstall MS Office 2003 on my old XP computer (which is now in mothballs) numerous times since I bought it when it was first released. If you do not allow it the Microsoft Office File Validation add-in will keep on nagging you to do so. But don't worry because after it is installed it is not malevolent in any way. And I did not experience any "making computers run very slow" in all those times I reinstalled it. There are many, many things that can make a computer run slowly but - based on my experience anyway, this is not one of them. Most of the people out there in those forums are panicked by the term "validation" because they may be running program that they did not buy and/or may not actually own. And they believe it may uncover this fact after they click OK and install it.

Side Note: Goggling any software program "just because" can sometimes be not as reliable one would hope. And can bring up problems and possible solutions that are not very trustworthy.

on start up, I sometimes get the message "the data file Personal Folders was not closed properly. File is being checked for problems." I know Outlook was closed properly at computer shut down. Why the message and what's the solution? Thanks!

Answer:Personal folders file in microsoft office out

Did you close Outlook AT shutdown, or BEFORE shutdown? It makes a difference. The Outlook closing process needs to complete before logging off, restarting, or powering down the computer.

Answer:missing proplus.exe file for microsoft office

Just for the record:Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:? Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.? Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for ... Read more

Cannot open file: C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\Wrong Number.msg. the file may not exist, you may not have permission to open it, etc. I right clicked properties on the folder and it shows a 7.6 MB file that should open with Microsoft Office Outlook. Does anyone know why this may happen?

Using Office Premium 2000 in Vista x64.
Already installed SR-1a & SP-3.

There's a Office File Converter Pack (OCONVPCK.EXE) applicable to Office 2000, to allow opening / saving files in formats from Word 97 and Office 2003.

Another pack, MS Office Compatibility Pack for Office 2007 also allows Office 2K, 2003 to use files saved in Office 2007 format.

Read requirements for both & believe I met them all.
Researched MS support extensively & saw nothing saying these 2 packs can't be installed at same time. AFAIK, their functions don't overlap.

Installed the File Converter Pack for Office '03 first - went OK.
Tried to install the 2007 Compatibility Pack next & gave error message:
Another version of this product is already installed. Installation of this version cannot continue. To configure or remove the existing version, use Add / Remove Programs.Click to expand...

Anyone tried installing both of these in Office 2K?


Answer:Using 2 MS Office File Converter / Compatibility packs in Office 2K

I dont know if this will help you, but there is also a service pack for the campatability file that you have installed.

I hope that might help. I am having my own problems in that I cannot open DOCX files. all updates and compatability packs installed. My OS is XP pro withe XP OFFICE.

Best of luck
