I thought I'd give a little more info. I found the Content.IE and Temporary Internet Files folders. I attached some screenshots.
One of them says "No program is registered to open this file." Is there a way to tell MS Word that a certain program is registered to open the hyperlink?
The other one basically says that EWIG41JE\signup.aspx file wasn't created. Why not? How can I tell MSWord or the hyperlink to create this file since it's needed?
I also did some internet searches for the problem but each fix mentioned didn't work. I also went into the registry and did this:
To work around this issue, either add the ForceShellExecute subkey, if it is not present, and set the Value data, or if it is present, set the Value data of the ForceShellExecute subkey.
Adding the Internet Subkey to the Registry and Setting the Value Data
- Quit any programs that are running.
- Click Start, and then click Run. Type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.
- In Registry Editor, browse to one of the following subkey (create the keys when they do not exist):
For a 64 Bit version of Office on 64 bit version of Windows
- Make sure the Internet subkey is selected. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value. Add the following registry value:
Value Name: ForceShellExecute
- Double-click ForceShellExecute, and then set the Value data to 1. Click OK.
- On the Registry menu, click Exit.
After I did this, I started to receive a MS error message that says: "An Unexpected Error Occurred."
I couldn't find out how to do this:
Application used to perform function on my machine read “C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE” -nohome %1. Changing it to “C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe” -nohome did the trick!
Does anyone have any ideas about all of this?
