Problem with reading '.doc' files. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to read '.doc' files without using Microsoft Interop Office Assemblies as the server doesnot have Microsoft Office Components installed.

    As an alternative, i have used Document Format Open XML SDK to read word files. It read '.docx' appropriately, but fails while reading '.doc' files.

    Is it true that '.doc' word file cannot be read without Microsoft Interop Office Assemblies and for that Office COM has to be installed on the server?

    Any help in this regard will be appreciated.
