Can Aspose be used in place of Word to edit and save documents?

We have a .NET app that is very document centric. As originally developed, it invokes MS Word to allow users to edit .doc files. In upgrading the app to current S/W versions, we’ve lost the ability to edit documents - they open read-only in Word 2010 because we’re opening them via URL. Can Aspose replace Word for this function?

Thank you for considering Aspose.Words. I would like just to clarify, Aspose.Words is a class library, which allows working with MS Word documents programmatically. Aspose.Words does not provide any user interface for viewing or editing documents.
However it is possible to create Document preview, for example by converting your document to image, XPS or SWF format.
Best regards.
