I wouldn't imagine it is too difficult for this plugin to try to locate the WordConv.exe executable rather than assuming where it is located.

Office also comes in 64-bit versions, and some users might install it somewhere else - so perhaps the plugin needs first to use the registry to find the Office installation location and then to search through directories to find the executable.
Firstly, I agree with BR. Use DOCX as the input format instead of DOC. The results will probably be better.

But, you can configure the location of the wordconv.exe. Go into the preferences, "Input options" and select "DOC Input". I don't think finding it automatically is worth the effort.

@BetterRed - already did that for the 5 DOC files I had. But I added the comment so that someone could fix it if anyone was interested in putting in the effort.
