I thought maybe the "ActiveX + Preview + Office + Web" or "Multiview" plugin might be able to but when I have the preview window open I just get prompted to open the file in Libre office rather than get a preview in DO.

When I click configure on Preferences->Viewer->Viewer Plugins->Multiview I get a "Viewer DLLs could not be located" and a locate button, could this have anything to do with it?

Not looking to purchase any software just to preview these files.

OpenOffice used to have an ActiveX control but nobody was maintaining it, last I looked (some years ago now), and it had bugs so severe it could not render a blank page correctly let alone anything more complex, whether used in Opus or IE.

I don't know if that is still the case.

Asking about preview handlers (work in Explorer and Opus) or ActiveX controls (work in IE and Opus) in a forum for OpenOffice or LibreOffice is probably your best bet for an up to date answer.
