is it possible to print a word document directly from the document libary? This must be done witout opening word on the local machine.
In order to print a Word document, Word must be opened one way or the other. Maybe not exactly what you are looking for, but you can open the document library in Explorer, then right-click the Word document(s) and select Print from the context menu. This will open Word, perform the print operation (to the default printer) and close Word again.
