  • "XML" can be just about anything, since xml is a markup language. I suppose you mean either the Word 2003 XML vocabulary or the Open Office XML file format?

    Possibly, this could be done with the Word Automation Services for Office 2010: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee558830.aspx

    Or, you can try looking for third-party software that do a conversion without needing Word present on the machine.

    As your question has nothing to do with the VSTO technology (something that runs in-process with the Word application, so Word must be installed on the machine)  I'm going to move it to the Word for Developers forum.
