Here’s an e-mail I just received from Cindy Howard at Corel that I thought I should pass along.

"Recently, the WordPerfect team here at Corel has been getting questions about Windows Vista–specifically asking whether or not WordPerfect Office X3 works on Microsoft’s new operating system. I’m pleased to report that yes indeed, Corel WordPerfect Office X3 has ‘works with Windows Vista’ certification.

"Most boxes on store shelves (and all those purchased from Corel’s eStore) are already enabled to run on Windows Vista. Copies of WordPerfect Office X3 purchased before the release of Windows Vista are automatically updated when you connect to the Internet after installing the office suite on Windows Vista. Users can also download a special patch from to make WordPerfect Office X3 work with Windows Vista.

"Most users on previous versions of WordPerfect Office, Microsoft Office or other Corel software are eligible to upgrade to the Vista-compatible WordPerfect Office X3 for as little as $159. If you or any of your contacts need more information about WordPerfect or other Corel products running on Windows Vista, please visit For more information about Corel WordPerfect Office X3 or to download a free trial version of the suite to test on the new OS, please visit ."
