Is there any application to view .doc files created by Microsoft Word? I don't need to edit the file, I want to view it (with the ability to copy the selected text to clipboard).
The application should be portable (that is, providing a separate portable installation option or just distributed in a zip archive, so that I would unpack the archive and run the executable immediately, without any installation procedure).
I tried to use AbiWord and LibreOffice, but was not satisfied. They take incredibly long time to open even relatively small files (a few megabytes in size), and sometimes show unreadable garbage instead of the original content. Maybe it's because they are editors, not viewers? But I only need to view the file, not edit it.
