  • Tony,

    Office Web Apps is neither a freeware nor does it run on server by default on OS installation. It needs to be procured with license from MS.

     

    Thanks

  • Hi Arut

    These forums target programming questions. For this question, it would be better for you to post to a forum that targets the end-user. You'll find more knowledge there about the web apps (that have no programming interface, so no one who works here would use them).

  • I am no expert in this, but don't the Office web apps run on the server, so there is nothing to download.

  • Hi Arut,
     
    It's your question, and your thread, so please feel free to ignore me, but if it doesn't run on the server what makes it a 'web app'. What purpose does it serve paying for and running a web app on the client, and how does it differ from the client version?
     
    Or are you asking about Office 365?
     

    Enjoy,

  • Tony,

    This software runs on the server and hence, a web app. My intention in the previous reply was to highlight that this software doesn't run as a freeware upon OS installation. License has to be procured for this software. 

    The purpose of this software is to give users the ability to display/ edit or save MS documents (like word, excel, ppt etc) in a web browser and the same can be integrated with software products like SharePoint.  This sftware is a part of Office 365, but then Office 365 is not a freeware either.

     


    Thanks Arut

  • Arun,

    There is no trial or demo version of Office Web Apps. Atleast that was the conclusion of my pursuit in getting this software.

    However, MS has a Skydrive site where you can have a look at this. 


    Thanks Arut
