Hi Carsten, 
We have analyzed your requirement (Preview the word document). We can achieve your requirement by using RTE component. Initially, in “BeforeOpen” event of FileExplorer, pass the document path to the AJAX handling “Importing” method that is available in the controller part. Then the “Importing” method process the word document and return the document content to the AJAX success method, then we should pass the returned content to the “setHtml” method of RTE component. Please refer the below code block. 
function OnBeforeOpen(args) { 
            if (args.itemType == "File" && (/\.(docx)$/i).test(this._selectedFile)) { 
                var file = args.model.selectedFolder + args.model.selectedItems[0]; 
                    url: '@Url.Action("Importing", "FileExplorer")', 
                    type: "POST", 
                    dataType: "json", 
                    data: { FilePath: file }, 
                    success: function (data) { 
                        var rte = $("#rteSample").ejRTE("instance"); 
                        var dialogObj = $("#dialogAPI").ejDialog("instance"); 
                        dialogObj.option("title", args.model.selectedItems[0]); 
public object Importing(string FilePath) 
            string HtmlString = string.Empty; 
            string path = System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath(FilePath); 
            //var path = FilePath; 
            if (path != null) 
                using (var mStream = new MemoryStream()) 
                    new WordDocument(path).Save(mStream, FormatType.Html); 
                    mStream.Position = 0; 
                    HtmlString = new StreamReader(mStream).ReadToEnd(); 
                HtmlString = ExtractBodyContent(HtmlString); 
                foreach (var item in DecodeKeys()) 
                    HtmlString = HtmlString.Replace(item.Key, item.Value); 
            else HttpContext.Response.Write("Select any file to upload."); 
            return Json(HtmlString); 
For your convenience, we have prepared simple sample, it can be downloaded in below location.

Please let us know, if you have any other concerns.
