Microsoft Works needed

I recently signed a new client - woot woot! The first task I am faced with is finding and loading a copy of Microsoft Works (the most recent version, which I believe is version 9) so one of the employees can finish a project they have been working on for almost two years in the Works spreadsheet. The workstation hard drive crashed. I do know you can convert .xlr files into Excel files, however, the employee is adamant it doesn't convert correctly. I took a copy of the file and converted it using Excel 2013, and sure enough some of the data is missing and/or incorrect. Does anyone know where I can obtain a file of Microsoft Works?

Thanks!

Works was usually installed by default on PC's, so restore it to factory defaults using the recovery partition or the recovery CD's your customer made when he got the PC. If he didn't make those CD's, and the recovery partition doesn't exist anymore or doesn't work, order recovery media from the PC manufacturer. That should also include the original works...
