Need Ribbon Hero 2 Version information

If I go to www.ribbonhero.com, I see only one version of Ribbon Hero 2 to download. The installation file is called RHSetup.msi. What version of Ribbon Hero 2 is this? (I mean for which Operating System?)

If I download Ribbon Hero 2 from http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/...
then I see 3 versions of Ribbon Hero 2. (Windows 7, Vista, and Windows XP)

I need the Windows XP version since I have multiple users per machine, even though I'm running Windows 7 in the lab. I know this for a fact because I made the mistake of downloading the Windows 7 version as an administrator first and found that the other users (the kids) could not use it after loggging in with their user id. I'm installing in a K-8 computer lab.

I want to provide a Ribbon Hero 2 Download link to all my students and parents to use at home. If I just give them the link www.ribbonhero.com, then what version of RH2 will they be downloading?

If you download RibbonHero from www.ribbonhero.com, you will get version 2. You can download the XP version from the FAQ on ribbonhero.com.

Thanks,

Chad, I'm going to attach two different download screenshots.

The first is from the Microsoft download center, showing the 3 possible downloads for Ribbon Hero 2 -> RHSetup_Vista.msi, RHSetup_XP.msi, or RHSetup_7.msi

The second screenshot is from www.ribbonhero.com. It shows only one possible download for Ribbon Hero 2. The file is called RHSetup.msi. Will this download work for any version of windows? If so, why does the download center have 3 different download choices? Also, will this version support multiple users like the RHSetup_XP.msi version above?

Thanks for your help!

From above, it sounded like you need the Win XP version. I can't vouch for what's on the download center. Tt should be identical to what's on ribbonhero.com and most likely the Win7/Vista msi were just renamed appropriately for clarity and uploaded twice.

To get the XP MSI can be downloaded from RHSetup-XP.msi
