change file associate in w2k termserver

By Seadogs ·
I am trying to change the file association for all excel files to open with excel viewer instead of ms excel. We are running w2k terminal server. I installed the xcel viewer and changed the associated file types. But when I double click a .xls file, it still opens with excel. Any ideas?

The way I read it is the viewer was developed by MS to be an add-on to Excel, or a substitute if Excel is not installed on a Machine needing to open a E. spreadsheet. If you uninstall excel the viewer will be the default, but then you loose the fullfunctionality of Excel. Can't have it both.

I ended up uninstalling, then reinstalling the viewer on the server. Now they both work fine. The default is to open with viewer, but you can open excel and then open the file you want to edit. Thanks though.
