Avantstar’s Quick View Plus® 11 File Viewing Software Expands Support to Newest
Versions of Microsoft® Windows® and Office

Expanded file format support cuts cost even further of purchasing and maintaining software.

Chanhassen, Minn., Aug. 10, 2010 — Avantstar, Inc., a provider of desktop-file-viewing, content conversion and web content management software, today announced that its newly enhanced file-viewing software—Quick View Plus® Version 11 Standard Edition—supports Windows 7 (32-bit version), Office 2010, and additional file formats and applications. According to company Founder and Co-President Pete Rockers, “Our continued expansion of Quick View Plus reduces software licensing costs for individuals and businesses since users are able to view and print virtually any file in its original format without having the actual application on their desktop. It not only saves purchasing and maintenance expenses for applications that aren’t regularly used, but also eliminates information-exchange issues with vendors and associates.”

  • Support for Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit version);
  • Support for Microsoft Office 2010 file formats (including Word, Excel and PowerPoint);

  • Ability to view .PST and .OST files over 2GB;
  • Support for Microsoft Office 2007 charts;
  • Support for Adobe Acrobat 9; and
  • Support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 and Mozilla Firefox 3.5.

In addition to expanding support for additional file types, Quick View Plus 11 Standard Edition is closely aligned with Windows and Microsoft Outlook. New capabilities include:

  • Ability to view files directly in the Preview Pane within Windows Explorer for Microsoft Windows 7 and Vista users.
  • Direct viewing of attachments within Microsoft Outlook 2007.
