I'm using Offline Explorer Pro to export my site, which contains Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents. The documents download and are in the exported copy, the links appear to be accurate, but the files won't open when viewing in IE (I'm on version 8).

What am I missing to make these open??

It is simply MS IE security restriction. Please either use FireFox or another browser or export to CHM or EXE file.

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately because this is a work project we are forced to use only IE. There is no override for this in IE?

Unfortunately, no. This was introduced several years ago and still I am not aware of any good workaround. Please try CHM or EXE export.
