China's State Administration for Industry & Commerce has given Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) 20 days to respond to queries resulting from its investigation into the compatability of its Windows operating system and Office software suite.

At least 30 foreign companies have been recently probed by Chinese regulators as the government seeks to enforce a 2008 anti-trust law.

Microsoft says it is "serious about complying with China's laws and committed to addressing SAIC's questions and concerns".
