Benefits and Description

In addition to supporting MS Office 2003 and XP, Windchill 9.1 Desktop Integration now supports MS Office 2007. The Desktop Integration module can be installed from the Home>Utilities>Software Downloads page.

As a part of supporting Office 2007, this module has been completely re-written for versions 9.1 and ported to the Microsoft .NET architecture to give better performance and improved stability.

In addition to adopting the new “ribbon UI” look and feel, Desktop Integration also supports the new MS Office file formats (e.g. docx, pptx etc).
