Windows 7: How to open documents from old computer??

How to open documents from old computer??

Many of my documents that I copied over to my new computer from my old one (which I still have and runs Vista) were written on Microsoft Works & have the file association WSP . As Win 7 doesn’t come with this older program, short of going back to my old computer & converting them to a program I can download onto both (which would be very time consuming to say the least) is there some way to either convert them to a file association that a program on Win 7 can open or download a program that could open them?

Thanks for all the help,

If you don't have a current MS Office Suite installed, see if Open Office will handle those document types.
