The selection boxes should not prevent you downloading a version. If your computers are running
Windows (or have the same operating system) you can transfer the downloaded installation file
from one to the other and install it there.

If your documents are in WordPerfect format, you can transfer them to OpenOffice format (.ODF/.odt)
using a free service such as OpenOffice 4.1 will not read WordPerfect format,
but the transfers via zamzar will open, although, as with all transfers, they may need some
fine tweaking.
