    Should, I'm using LibreOffice on Windows 7. So many of the apps are working on my test 8.1 box.

    Thank's a lot for the info.
    There is nothing on the 'net I could find to confirm it is supported in Win 8.1
    I did install it last night and did not see any problems at all.

    It calls for JRE Runtime for some things to work. I'm very leery about installing it as I remember Java had or has a lot of security problems.

    Yeah, don't install Java, I did not and I've had no issues.

    I did not think it was a "had to have item" so did not plan to install it and will not either.

    I did have it on my Win 7 'puter and when all the problems started coming to light I removed every bit of it I could find. Everything ran fine without it. This was probably a year or more ago.

    The answer to my original question is a definite yes !
