Do not mix Office 32-bit and Office 64-bit

Excel kept saying that my .xlsx files weren't associated with Excel by default, so I thought to be clever and execute an Office repair action:
  • Control Panel > Programs > Programs & Features
  • Microsoft Office 365 - en-us: right-click and choose "Change"
  • Then you get the choice "Quick Repair" or "Online Repair"
I don't know what choice I made, but what I know, is that my Office installation was completely unusable because:

Office - <a class="foswikiNewLink" href="/bin/edit/Boossy/WeFoundAProblem?topicparent=Boossy.DoNotMixOffice32bitAndOffice64bit" rel="nofollow" title="Create this topic">WeFoundAProblem</a>!.png

So, after that, I kep Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010 - for my much beloved Picture Manager, and I installed the 64-bit version of Microsoft Office as well.
