  • Yes, you would need office installed on the machine that will actually run the code that requires access to the object library. The word object library is just a bridge between the actual word code base, and your code.

  • I gave you the answer, it just is not the answer you wanted to hear. If an application is running on a given machine, and that application needs to use the word object library, and word is not installed, the application will fail. Setting a reference to the word object library does not bring the functionality of word into your app, it bridges the functionality of word with your app.

    If you explain in more detail what you are trying to do, there may be an alternative someone can supply to you. What is it you are using word for on the server?
