Dear Experts

Can you please tell me more on the "Microsoft document imaging viewer". Is this a free tool or do I need to purchase along with office suite.
If this is a free one, where can I download this.

I appreciate your help.

    Microsoft Office Document Imaging only comes with Office XP, 2003 and 2007. You will need valid office licence for it to be installed legally.

    Thanks for that. Even for the viewer, do I need to have Office license. Please clarify

    The official name of this software is "Microsoft Office Document Imaging" (MODI), with an emphasis on the "Office".

    It comes among the Office Tools with an Office installation and cannot be downloaded separately; only help files and Visual Basic language references for it are offered for download on the MS site.

    There is no Microsoft Office Document Imaging Viewer application, only the Microsoft Office Document Imaging application (which is basically a viewer with some extra features). It can only be installed from an office installation setup. You don't need to install any of other office apps,  but you still need the licence.

    If your looking for a good viewer, you might also want to look at something like IrfanView -
