Hey, all,

I may have missed something very obvious here, but I'm trying to install Trados 2007 on my Mac via Virtual PC v. 7, and it doesn't seem to have MS Office pre-installed. I did a search for MS Word and tried to open a Word doc as an attachment within Virtual PC: the search came up with nothing, and the attachment opened in Notepad. So no dice. I assume, then, that I have to buy MS Office for Windows from Microsoft, yes? (The MS site for Mac users has no info on this, and the support section tells me they charge $35 to answer any question. Aargh!)

Any help would be *greatly* appreciated.

MS Office isn't part of MS Windows, so yes, it doesn't come "pre-installed".
