I can’t open microsoft word document?

I have window vista and microsoft office enterprise . When i double click on word document file it gives me following error:

“C:Usersmy user nameDesktoptest.doc is not a valid Win application”

the other thing is if i have microsoft word open, I can click on file>open> and the i can be able to open the same document. But i don’t know why i can’t open it by double clicking on it? Can anyone please help me with this. I will appreciate it.
