Just like title and description, since the company will not respond to the question,
Does Kingsoft Office Suite require .NET Framework, or Visual C++ Redistributables in order to install and work?

My old notebook computer with Windows XP s.p. 3 does not have .NET and does not (or not supposed to) have Visual C++ Redistributables, and I do not want to install them, because that old notebook computer is old and slow and has limited hard disc capacity. The idea is to try the Kingsoft Office on the old computer and test it, before trying on the newer notebook computer (which does have the .NET and some C++ Redistr.s) with Windows Vista.

I don't follow your logic. Why not put on the new machine and uninstall if it's no good? If you put it on the old machine, would you uninstall anyway if it's no good? If you install it on the old machine and it's slow, what will that tell you? Nothing.

The emphasis is on software requirements. Would Kingsoft Office need software beyond just the operating system, or would it need additional software such as .NET or C++ Redistributables?

Regarding installing and uninstalling if the program is unsatisfactory, I want to only install software onto the newer machine if I intend to keep it and use it and will not take chances on that machine. I try to test how is a piece of software on the old machine first if I'm not sure about it. IF Kingsoft Office can work on Windows XP with no other additional required packages, then I can test on the older slower computer and not put the newer computer at any risk.
