Contextual menu .doc


Contextual menu for .doc stop working...
Menu is not there when i right click on a doc document
On every other document it is working fine including docx.
Tried to un install Pdf creator
Re install office

Nothing is working!


PDFCreator relies on the default application for the file type to correctly register a command for printing it.
So it seems Word has correctly registered a command for printing .docx files, but not for .doc files.

First the “Default” entries for HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT.docx / HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT.doc are checked to get full name of the filetype, on my machine it is “Word.Document.12” for docx and "Word.Document.8" for .doc files.
If this is the same on your machine, you can check if the command for
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Word.Document.12\shell\Printto\command and
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Word.Document.8\shell\Printto\command are identical and if not copy the value of the working command (docx/Word.Document.12) into the command for .doc files (HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Word.Document.8\shell\Printto\command).

Although I doubt this can break anything, always create a backup of your registry before making any changes to it.
