MS Office Document imaging

Hi,
I have some .MDI files I need to view, and as far as I can ascertain it will require an installation of an earlier version of MS Office under Windows than what I am running now. Right now I am running Office for Mac 2011 under OS X and it does not have the MODI required to view and create .MDI files. I understand that later versions of MS Office for Windows lost MODI as well.

I do have an installation of Windows 7 running on a VM, but no MS Office installed there, only on the Mac OS. The question is, is there an easier option for viewing these .MDI files, which were created in MS Office 2003, than installing an old version of Office? I haven't been able to find one, and thought I'd ask the experts before jumping into an office install just to look at these files. But if that's what it takes, then that's what it takes.

Thanks for the help!
