I guess! you are about Word Automation.

>I also need to know how to play a specific video from a path using Microsoft.Directx.AudioVideoPlayBack library.

Use SilverLight/WPF

Thanks very much it was very helpful,but in word automation i still don't know how to print it later.I have code that make me edit the "dot files" and print it in the same instance, but what i need is to call this file later and print it and save in another location.

//this code to edit the word file and save it
//after saving it in aspecific location i need to open it just as review not to edit
//or printing it through printing button
private void CreateWordDocument(object fileName, 
                                        object saveAs)
        {
            //Set Missing Value parameter - used to represent
            // a missing value when calling methods through
            // interop.
            object missing = System.Reflection.Missing.Value;

            //Setup the Word.Application class.
            Word.Application wordApp = 
                new Word.ApplicationClass();

            //Setup our Word.Document class we'll use.
            Word.Document aDoc = null;

            // Check to see that file exists
            if (File.Exists((string)fileName))
            {
                DateTime today = DateTime.Now;

                object readOnly = false;
                object isVisible = false;

                //Set Word to be not visible.
                wordApp.Visible = false;

                //Open the word document
                aDoc = wordApp.Documents.Open(ref fileName, ref missing, 
                    ref readOnly, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, 
                    ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, 
                    ref missing, ref isVisible, ref missing, ref missing, 
                    ref missing, ref missing);

                // Activate the document
                aDoc.Activate();

                // Find Place Holders and Replace them with Values.
                this.FindAndReplace(wordApp, "<name>", "Zach Smith");
                this.FindAndReplace(wordApp, "<address>", "00 Main Street");
                this.FindAndReplace(wordApp, "<city>", "Louisville");
                this.FindAndReplace(wordApp, "<state>", "KY");
                this.FindAndReplace(wordApp, "<zip>", "40202");
                this.FindAndReplace(wordApp, "<company>", "TechRepublic");

                //Example of writing to the start of a document.
                aDoc.Content.InsertBefore("This is at the beginning\r\n\r\n");

                //Example of writing to the end of a document.
                aDoc.Content.InsertAfter("\r\n\r\nThis is at the end");
            }
            else
            {
                MessageBox.Show("File dose not exist.");
                return;
            }

            //Save the document as the correct file name.
            aDoc.SaveAs(ref saveAs, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, 
                    ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, 
                    ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, 
                    ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing);

            //Close the document - you have to do this.
            aDoc.Close(ref missing, ref missing, ref missing);
            

            MessageBox.Show("File created.");
        }
