Hello, I was wondering if anyone could help me with a strange problem. After uploading an RTD document to be translated yesterday, memoq has started acting strangely. Now every time I open a project in memoq, microsoft word opens automatically, with a dialogue box saying that Word is not the predefined program for viewing and editing documents (which of course it is). I have tried updating all of the file associations on Word, and I think that is all okay, but I still don't understand why Word is opening when I open memoq.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thank you
