Why you want to use a version of Word Perfect that first came out in circa 1994 and was designed to be used in Dos / Win 3.1 ?
Apparently you can get it to work in XP but why would you want to?

OpenOffice is a freeware (open source) suite of software that is constantly being updated and can read and edit any Microsoft Office program files - Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.
