What is WP7?
DocX is a .net library which requires only the .net framework 3.5 or greater to work.
Please provide more information.

Aw of course... I have never used WP7. I'm actually more of an Android guy. Not sure if this is shocking but I am after all a big believer in OpenSource.

Anyways back to your question.
I imagine WP7 runs a compact version of the .net framework and thus DocX is not going to run on the phone.

Why do you need to process the documents on the phone?
Could you not do the document processing remotely on a server and just use the phone to schedule the work?
Of course, if the documents are on the phone in the first place, this would require uploading them to the server and then re-downloading the processed document. If however the documents are not required on the phone, you could just display their names or some other identifier?

Kind regards,
