    I have a friend that has a new Hewlett-Packard with Windows Vista. She can’t
    afford Office yet so is unable to open word documents. Carey Frisch and Ken
    Blake have both (In the past) recommended the word viewer download at:

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...87-8732-48D5-8689-AB826E7B8FDF&displaylang=en

    However, the latest supported operating system for this is shown as being
    Windows XP. There is no indication as to whether this download is supported
    on Media Center or Vista.

    Can some one assure me that this download is Ok for Vista, or perhaps point
    me to a Word Viewer that is Vista certified?

    It works fine in Vista. You may want to try OpenOffice. The Word Viewer can
    only view files. OpenOffice could edit the files.

    Thank youi Kerry Brown for your reply. I will take a look at Open Office but
    right now just want to find something that will let her read documents
    without causing problems.

  7. She should look at downloading the latest viewer. It will also allow her
    to view Office 2007 files....

    Can some one assure me that this download is Ok for Vista, or perhaps
    Surfing I only see the 2003 version - I would like to know where to get the
    Vista version if it exists.

    Office viewers has nothing to do with Vista version or any other Windows version.

    Go to the Office download site and find the viewers for Office 2007
