Document Conversions Launcher Service ? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  What is the purpose of  "Document Conversions Launcher Service" in Sharepoint?

    Why do you need it or have it activated?

    Thanks for any clarifications.

  • Hi Russ,

    Well, if you're not using Document Conversion (converting e.g. a Word document to an .aspx page), you will probably not need it.
    Turning off the Document Conversions Launcher Service will stop the document conversion process aswell... But if you don't use Document Conversion, it shouldn't be a problem.
