```One of my colleagues asked me two questions I cannot answer as I use
neither MikTeX nor WinEdit:

I am currently running WinEdt 5.5 and using Miktek 2.7 on Windows XP
2003 Package 3. I must now upgrade to Miktek 2.9 as my older version
is no longer supported and I want to install Beamer so I can do
presentations with it. Let me know if you can answer the following
questions? (I have contacted support at WinEdt but no answer from them
yet.)

1. Can I continue to use WinEdt 5.5 with Miktek 2.9?

2. I am a pretty basic user of Latex, few bells and whistles. The only
reason I am upgrading to Miktek 2.9 is to use Beamer, which I never
and is not available any more on 2.7. Are there likely to be any

Also can anyone comment on compatibility between      WE 6 and Windows
XP 2003 Package 3.
