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

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

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.

Install Error -- The install in progress conflicts with a previous installed MS Office 2010 Server P

  

Hi,

Working on a development image in Hyper-V.  This image had never had any beta installed of any product.  Had SharePoint Server 2010 and Office Web Apps installed but another installation of another product messed up IIS settings.  It was easier to just uninstall both and start again.  I uninstalled both fine but now when I try to reinstall SharePoint I get an error message saying:

"The install install in progress conflicts with a previous installed Microsft Office 2010 Server Product"

I have done multiple reboots, manually deleted the SharePoint folders on the machine and run CC Cleaner.  Still I get this error.

I even tried the advice suggsted in this blog post: http://blogs.technet.com/chad/archive/2010/04/28/Installing-SharePoint-2010-RTM-Over-Previous-Versions.aspx even though I never had beta installed.

Anyone have anythoughts?

But I still get the same error message. Any ideas how i can resolve this issue?

OLAP: Build an OLAP Reporting App in ASP.NET Using SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services and Office XP

  

Many organizations analyze their business-critical data using Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) technology. OLAP-based data mining provides a way to query multidimensional data sets and drill down into the data to find patterns. ASP.NET and the Microsoft Office Web Components (OWC) enable Web-based OLAP reporting. The OWC controls include PivotTable and Chart components that can be embedded in a Web page and scripted by programmers. In this article, the authors build a Web-based OLAP reporting app using ASP.NET, OWC, and SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services to illustrate the process.
