Default Cannot associate .doc files with Word 2007 on Windows 7

I have Word 2007. I double click a doc file and a dialog opens asking me
which program to open it with. Word is not among the options. So I click
"Always use the selected program ..."and then go into "Browse ..." find my
Offce12 folder and the winword.exe file, select it, and ... nothing happens.
Doc files continue to have no association.

So I tried the built-in diagnostics on Word 2007, and it was ok. Then I
tried "winword /r" to re-register Word 2007. It seemed to run to completion,
but it made no difference.

I cannot associate doc files with Word 2007 (under Windows 7, at least), no
matter what I do. I've seen in other forums other people with the same
problem, but no one has been able to solve it.

Any suggestions?

I have Word 2007 installed. I have run the built-in Word diagnostics, and
everything appears normal.

You will probably have to edit the file association in the registry - in
earlier Windows versions you could adopt the method shown at
http://www.gmayor.com/Document_Not_Found.htm but I do not know how far this
relates to Windows 7.
