Editing Word docs - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

I want to edit a Word doent with Contribute but when I select the file using the choose button the file open in a new window. I am able to edit a pdf because it opens in the Contribute browser window. Is there a way to get the Word doent to open in the Contribute window for editing. I want to replace the existing file on the server with the edited version. Thanks....

    Default Re: Editing Word docs

    Hi, If you are editing a Word doc in the server, Contribute will launch Word
    so that you can edit the doent. In this example, Contribute cannot edit a
    Word doc, so Contribute will pass the file to Microsoft Word for editing.
    This TechNote explains an issue with updating docs in the server:
