Ultimately nothing more than a way to extract text etc from Word docs or PDFs, that sort of thing; tables from spreadsheets too I guess.
VW has a whole COM/OLE system that certainly can be used to do the job, but simpler paths to the same end would be just fine by me.

All of the above really; I haven't paid any attention to what microsoft does with stuff for a very long time so I don't even really know good search terms right now. Is COM still the thing or have they come up with some other acronym? Is there a completely different mechanism out there? Is there anything that might even be cross platform? Something chocolate favoured?
