Error when openning MS Office files (*.doc, *.xls, *.ppt)
(Wine 1.0.1 and Wine 1.1.42, Ubuntu 10.04)



I get this error when I try to open MSOffice 2003 files (like *.doc or *.xls or *.ppt): 

"The file '/home/blabla/Doc1.doc' is not marked as executable.  If this was downloaded or copied form an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run.  For more details, read about the executable bit."

I did read somes posts for problems like thise but for *.exe files [1] [2]. I had also problem with *.exe files and I resolve it in modifiing the permissions of the .exe files. 

But here, the problem is more difficult: it is not only one or two files to modifie, but every *.doc (or *.xls or *.ppt) files on my computer...

Perhaps it is possible to create a script to modifie the permissions of the file when I click on it?

Someone can help me for that (or for an other solution)?

Thank you very much
