Word Viewer 2010

I'm looking for the viewer for Word 2010. I'm upgrading everyone to Office 2010 but those that don't have the license we use the viewers.  I've found excel, powerpoint but no word?  Does any one know where I may find Word Viewer 2010?

It's right here,

Also, you can use LibreOffice which views and edits for free,

If you go into the settings for LibreOffice, it can be set to use Microsoft File formats by default.    I've set this up for countless clients to handle Word, Excel and Powerpoint types of files.

This is what I have and in order to make it work you need the compatibility pack?  What's up with that?  I have excel 2010, powerpoint2010 but no Word???

I'm not sure, the compatibility pack has worked well on the systems i've installed it on.   It just adds those newer extensions to the viewer.    I've used it for years without issues.

Office Libre is that really free.  I have quite a few machines that I need to install it on?

Yes, 100% free, i've installed it on many.

In LibreOffice, there isn't an alternative to Outlook.    I've setup Thunderbird for an Outlook alternative for many clients.

LibreOffice does handle those formats that the Compatibility Pack adds (.docx, .xlsx, etc..)
