        {
            String strFileName;
            
            //Find the Office document.
            openFileDialog1.FileName = "";
            openFileDialog1.ShowDialog();
            strFileName = openFileDialog1.FileName;
 
            //If the user does not cancel, open the document.
            if (strFileName.Length != 0)
            {
                Object refmissing = System.Reflection.Missing.Value;

Why? What requirements can justify such risky investment? --SA

To display a Word document you need to embed the Word OCX and read its documentation. Obviously, this requires that the user's machine has Word on it. A web browser, including the IE in the WebBrowser object, will typically start an external program to open this kind of document.

That's right (voted 5). That's why I recommended to consider different alternatives -- please see my answer. --SA

Bad idea. Word is a proprietary product. Not only the customers will have to pay for the license, there would be a vendor lock-in (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vendor_lock-in[^]) on the product, no compatibility, nothing good.
 
Think about: 1) HTML; 2) System.Windows.Forms.RichTextBox; 3) System.Windows.Controls.RichTextBox; 4) WPF Flow Document; 5) something else.
 
Please see:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.richtextbox.aspx[^],
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.controls.richtextbox.aspx[^],
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa970909.aspx[^].
 
[EDIT]
 
At the same time, Word file format compatibility is the easier problem. After all, OpenOffice, LibreOffice and other products support all versions of the format, please see:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenOffice.org[^],
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LibreOffice[^].
 
If you would like to support only the newer Office Open XML, the format itself is available and is standardized under ECMA-376 and ISO/IEC 29500:2008:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Office_Open_XML[^],
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Office_Open_XML_software[^].
 
Please see the comparison chart on Office Open XML software:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Office_Open_XML_software[^].
 
As some source code is available and open, you can use it.
