Are you using this version of catdoc?

Appears to be a DOS and Unix program with no Win32 port.  And, it
doesn't seem to have been developed for several years.  Should be
trivial to port to Win32.  I'll look around and see what I can find.  

Maybe I can find a better filter.  OpenOffice is LGPL and has excellent
Office 2000 convertors.
