    Hi

    I have excel 2013 (MS Office Professional) running under windows 7 professional

    I can open excel files with excel (file/open) with no problem

    If I use windows explorer to locate a file, double click on it, I get the following error
    "There was a problem sending the command to the program"

    I tried unregistering excel twice
    I also tried removing the XLB files

    Problem still persists

    Please advise
    Thanks
    Natig

    I have also tried uninstalling the program and reinstalling it, no help in there as well

    See if this works. In Windows Explorer, right-click the Excel file, choose "Open with" and set Excel as the default for Excel file types. Then see if double click works.
