Start WinWOrd in the same process - is it possible?

P: n/a

I'm writing the Windows Application and one of the ideas is to use a
RichText field to store/show some formatted text, probably with pictures.
The problem is that this RichEdit control is very poor and I'd like to use
WinWord for significant editing. I also don't want to exclude the RichEdit
control for some light changes of the same text.

So the problem is to start WinWord so that the main application should be
frozen until WinWord is closed. Is it possible to start WinWord as well as
any other child process inside running process (C# Windows Application) to
freeze the main application until the child process is finished? I want to
do that just to save and then import the RTF file written in WinWord.

I also assume that it's possible to use WinWord like embedded object but I'm
thinking that it's significantly harder for implementation.

Any other way?
