I am looking for a solution to display Word document(docx) as a Preview in browser from my MVC application. Now unlike PDF word document cannot be directly open in browser. So I am looking for some alternative ways like converting Docx to either PDF or Html OR
any Doc viewer that can get integrated in my app to view docx directly.
I searched a lot on google and tried many options. there are some tools available for Docx to PDF/Html conversion but they all are paid ones. I am looking for a completely free tool that will work in my MVC app on server(with IIS on AWS VM). Don't want to
use Office interop. I tried using WordToPDF.dll from
https://www.c-sharpcorner.com/UploadFile/698727/convert-word-file-to-pdf-using-C-Sharp/ link. This tool works fine on my localhost instance. but it is not working on app server. the WordToPDF.dll is copied in the bin folder on app server but still it is
not generating the PDF file at specified path. Can anyone suggest what could be the reason for this?
OR please suggest best solution that will fulfil my requirement. my final goal is to view generated word document (docx) in browser for preview either directly/as a PDF or html
