Without Corel applications, the program will extract embedded thumbnails only (all pages for CorelDRAW X4-X7 files, and first pages only for other CorelDRAW files).
Besides, the program can show file text, keywords, notes, used fonts, page size and other metadata.

The program can show all pages of InDesign INDD/INDT CS2+ files without using any 3rd party software, however to provide this, InDesign files must be saved with some settings in InDesign itself (see Edit | Preferences | File Handling in InDesign main menu):
"Always Save Preview Images with Documents" should be checked.
"Preview Size" should be set at least to "Large 512x512" (even better "Extra Large 1024x1024", but this can considerably increase file size).
"Pages" should be set to "All Pages".
Also, this screenshot shows Thumbnail View for files locating on remote WebDav drives.
