YAP is the .dvi reader of MikTeX. WinEdt is a beatiful editor; it is
not a TeX distro.

Recently I had to work on an old Toshiba (of a colleague of mine; I have
only Apple machine :-))  to install all the TeX stuffs
and so I know that you can set YAP easily to obtain the dvi-tex 
with TeXnicCenter.
I am using my titanium now, so I cannot be very precise but I remember
I had to search  something like "inverse synchro" in some YAP menus and
set  TeXnicCenter as preferred app  (together with its path on C:
...aaaarrrggghhhh  ;-) ).

I have also to remark that WinEdt is Shareware (40 $)
while TeXnicCenter is free.
