Editors' Review

+

Although it promises to allow you to view Microsoft Word and Excel files even when you don't have the source program, Fast Doc Viewer fails to deliver. The interface on this executable program resembles Windows Explorer, with a simple tree list of directories. There aren't any filters or other options to specify the type of file you want to view, but the publisher promises support for more than 15 formats, including Word, Excel, and TIFF files.

When you open a folder, however, no files in any format appear. The help file wouldn't open, and the publisher's Web site didn't offer a user manual or other guidance. A persistent nag screen adds to the annoyance. Fast Doc Viewer was more of a hindrance than a help, so we can't recommend this faulty program.

    "Piece of Crap"

    December 29, 2008   |   By Cruuser

    Version: Fast Doc Viewer 1.65 build 4.06

    Pros

    Small foot print

    Cons

    Doesn't do what the publisher says it would do. In particular, it would not open Quattro Pro qpw files.

    Summary

    Don't waste your download quota.

    May 02, 2006   |   By Suzi_Q

    Version: Fast Doc Viewer 1.65 build 4.06

    Pros

    It was fast to download

    Cons

    The programme didnt do what it said it would, it wouldnt open excel files, .doc files and I gave up trying after those. There seems to be no assistance or instructions. Steer well clear.
