What to install on server for app using Excel 12.0 Object library RRS feed

    Good afternoon....

    I am following this article on EggHeadCafe on creating an XLS spreadsheet

    Here on my machine for development, i have Office 2007 installed, so i assume that's why in my application i can add references for these COM object:

    Microsoft.Excel 12.0 Object Library
    Microsoft Office 12.0 Object Library
    Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications Extensibility 5.3 (automatically added when i added the Excel reference)


    I'd like to deploy this up to a server we have here, but i *do not* want to have to ask IT to install the Office 2007 suite to get this new code to work (because chances are, they won't)....

    I've looked high and low for what to install on the server, which i assume is the "new" version of OWC11, but i for the life of me cannot find the definitive answer on if this is possible (using this new code without having full Office installed), and if it is, what and where do i download and install on the server?

    Thanks in advance
