Default AbiWord set to default

I am having trouble changing WordPad default program to AbiWord.
In Default Programs mode then Associate file type with program mode, I find WordPad in Current Default column highlight it and hit Change program button.
This shows Recommended Program is NotePad,(of course microsoft would say that.)

Anyway when I browse for a substitute program, (AbiWord), and open it"s box I can not find an exe. file to select. (Does exe. mean executable.) ?

Could anybody please help.

P.s I have other problems with the computer as well, but will post those separately.
My operating system is 64bit and running windows 7 professional.

Smile Re AbiWord

I looked in the BIN folder and the icon was first on the list.

Don't know how to get to my threads at the moment, will have to study your site more.

Thanks for listening.
