Elczar Adame's Shared Points on SharePoint


Office Web Apps are online companions to Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint and Microsoft OneNote applications that allow us to access documents from anywhere. Yes! You read it right! We can view, share, and work on documents within supported Web browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari. Not to mention its availability through Windows Live, Office Web Applications can be greatly hosted in Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 or Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, where this piece will focus.

We are three steps away from this groundbreaking technology:

  1. Download and Install Office Web Apps
  2. Activate Office Web Apps Services
  3. Activate Office Web Apps Feature

Download and Install Office Web Apps

Important notes in installing Office Web Apps:

  1. Download Microsoft Office Web Apps from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=27d81b1c-18ae-4983-8e1c-224bb747eb99
  2. We will use the pre-release product key stipulated in this document.
  3. For our purpose, choose the default file location on the Choose a File Location window.
  4. Upon completing the setup, make sure to check the Run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard now checkbox. Below is the illustration.

Finish

 

5. On the Modify Server Farm Settings page of the configuration wizard, let us make sure to select Do Not Disconnect From This Server Farm. Below is the illustration.

Activate Office Web Apps Services

Important notes in activating Office Web Apps services:

  1. As illustrated below, we will use the farm Configuration Wizards in activating the services. This is not to mention that we can correspondingly use Windows PowerShell in activating the services.

Configuration

2. During the configuration process, merely choose the Office Web Apps services that you want to activate.

3. Note that you can optionally create a top-level site.

Activate Office Web Applications Feature

  1. As illustrated below, let us activate the Office Web Apps feature in all our site collections.

Activate

2. Additionally, we can similarly use Windows PowerShell in activating this feature.

We could now enjoy our Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint and Microsoft OneNote within a web browser.
