Does this application work with MS Word document?

I tried this application on my SharePoint Portal with MS Word documents in document library.

It went through all the Word documents but didn't find any match.

Does it work on MS Word documents?

Unfortunately, it does not.

It only work with text based documents (xml, txt).

Opening a word document on the server and replacing text inside is not a simple thing to do and requires either a 3rd party component, or office to be installed on the server.

Since the source code is published, it should be rather easy to find the place where office documents are ignored, and add this capability assuming you have a 3rd party component or know how to work with office API on the server.
