    Win 7 Explorer doc preview will not preview doc files

    Windows 7 explorer document preview shows "No preview available." when I try to view doc files, works fine with pdf and txt files: is there a fix?

    Tried a reg hack that I found else where but it removed all doc formatting and turned it into a txt file so I changed it back. Office starter displays the doc files in open file feature but will not show me a pdf; same for Word2000.

    You have to have a version of Office installed that supports previewing with Windows Explorer. Office Starter version is pretty severely restricted in its capabilities. I don't know that Office 2K versions support Explorer previewing.
