We'll show you how to use Office OpenXML, Word Automation Services and SharePoint to build a simple application that merges separate status reports into a single document.

Does Word Automation Services require Office 2010 install on server to function?

  

Subject is the question.

Background:

My requirements are to "maintain existing functionality with current version of a windows service running on Server 2003 and automating Word through COM."   I.E. All the stuff that breaks when you upgrade the OS to Server 2008.  

My customer has already rejected several third party alternatives as "not being accurate enough"  The rendered PDF doesn't match what comes out of Word when compared with an electron microscope.

So now I'm investigating using Word Automation Services and Sharepoint 2010.   Got my development server functional with Sharepoint 2010 and Visual Studio 2010.  But my first attempts at creating rendering jobs is failing with an "ArgumentNullException" in deep inside a method I'm 100.0% sure I'm NOT passing any NULL's to. 

My VM is low on space so I figure I'd save time by asking for a conclusive answer before I make room / install Office.


Long delay opening Word documents from SharePoint 2007 with Office 2010

  

The first time a document is opened it's fine, opens in just a few seconds.

Subsequently, there is a long delay (about 20 seconds) in the "Contacting server for information..." step.

This happens to all users and all documents, each one will open fast the first time then slowly the second and subsequent times (until, we think, the app pool is recycled - there is no schedules iisreset/reboot).

This does not happen when using Office 2007.

IE6 and 7 exhibit the same behaviour.
