[Tex/LaTex] How to use Latex in MS Word


I downloaded latex in word from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/latexinword/

But it just gives me an archive file that I have no idea what to do with. And I can't see any installation instructions anywhere either.

Any help getting this to work would be appreciated.

Even though I suspect mentioning MS Word might get you banned for life on TeX.SX, this looks like an interesting feature.

It appears to be a Macro, so review this perhaps: Record or Run a Macro

And after reading this review by this guy who shows as one of the developers, mrsparkle713, I think it might help to contact one of them.

This is an easy plugin for LaTeX in Word. One very nice feature is that it does not require you to install anything on your computer. It all runs out of Word using macros, and the LaTeX conversion is done on a remote server that can be changed if you don't want to use the one that is set up. Now that I have this I need to really learn LaTeX. After the learning curve, it should be a lot easier and more convenient to use than the equation editor that Word provides. I will be maintaining the project shortly, so take my review with a grain of salt.
