Project 2003 opens in web page not application RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was asked by one of the SharePoint 2007 users if there is any reason why when she opens up a Project 2003 file it opens in the application, but when one of her colleagues opens up the same file from same library, it opens in a web page.

    Im assuming its not library specific, but either an IE/Windows/Project switch, but I dont have the same desktop and no Project so cannot test.

    Any suggestions please

  • Right click that file, select "Open With..." -> "Select the program from a list" -> Select Sharepoint Designer -> Check the "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" -> click "OK"
