I tried this solution again and worked fine for me. Can you try again with some .doc files conversion?

Let me know if you still face the issue.

Thanks,

How you created the .doc file? Have you saved the word file to .doc format or change the extension of .docx file to .doc? (asked bcoz for curiosity)

Hi,

When we request for conversion on SharePoint. Word Automation service puts job details in database queue (first come first serve) and picks any pending job from database every 15 mins (set default and can be changed). You can also manually execute the job. For mine also it took long for initial conversions but after that it started working smooth.

I hope you like this utility. Feel free to give your feedback.

Thanks,
