Will Outlook Express install on Win 7

A friend has a computer running XP and is using Outlook Express. He bought a new computer running Windows 7. Will Outlook Express run on the Windows 7?

Windows Live Mail works great. I've been using it since Windows 7. I've got thee accounts on it. It does what OE did and more. You (or he) can download it here.

Thanks for the posts. I'm going to his house this morning and see if I can migrate his OE to Windows Live Mail.
