I recently installed LO on a Windows XP machine on which I had Open Office
installed. I did not select the option to have file associations set up for
MS Office extensions to LO. I then started all the LO applications, thinking
they may be importing settings from OO like they did on my Linux machine.
Then I uninstalled OO. Now, I found the file associations are lost. Trying
to manually assign them has failed. From Windows Explorer, I can right
click, select Open With, then navigate to the LO executable via the browse
button (it is not listed on the applications list) and select the right one,
but when I click OK, it goes back to a MSO association (like Excel for
.ODS). I used to have those associations working to open the OO apps.  I
didn't find a way in Tools/Options to reset the file associations. I can
probably reinstall to see if that fixes it. I wanted to check here to see if
anyone else knows what is going on and if a bug has been reported.
