Do you need to license Office Web Apps seperate from sharepoint server 2010 enterprise license?

Hi All, I been reading this article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff431687.aspx#bkmk_ins_exis_farm  and have come to the conculsion that if you want word viewing services and power point services you need to license and download office web apps separate from the SharePoint Licensing/download. Can anyone confirm this that may know more about the subject? I thought those services would come along with enterprise but from what I’m reading I guess not.   Regards, Jeff

Can I save documents to a website like from Office apps to SharePoint?


We're developing an Office add-in that will store documents in a database. What I'd like to be able to do is save the document to the server using a web-style address (e.g. http://documentsystem/NewDocument.docx), kind of like how it's done in SharePoint. The user does not need to enter the full address, it will be configured elsewhere, and the save process will be more or less automated.

When uploaded, I want to intercept the file, read the contents and store it in the database using some kind of custom handler. Is this possible? How would I go about doing this? Should I be using WebDAV? WCF services?


Install Office Web Apps on SharePoint


I am working on installing of the Office Web Apps on my SharePoint server (enterprise version). I'm confused about the install media. I've been told by our Microsoft partner that it is part of the Office 2010 Standard install. Because we have Office 2010 Proffesional thorugh our Volume Licensing, I tried installing OWA using it. There doesn't appear to be any option to just install the OWA and installing the full office suite did not install OWA as far as I can tell.

So, the question is: does OWA really only come with Office Standard or do I need to get seperate installation media?

Office Web Apps 2010 for SharePoint Foundation will not View Word or PowerPoint File


I have installed a SharePoint Foundation 2010 in a Farm environment and installed Office Web Apps 2010. I have not been able to view Word documents or PowerPoint documents inside of the web browser. I can view Excel documents okay and I can edit a Word doc in the browser.


Does anyone have any suggestions as to what may be the problem?

Multi-tenancy integration with Office Web Apps and SharePoint 2010 - Possible Solution?


Hi All, I've been scratching my head trying to figure out how to integrate Office Web Apps in to SharePoint 2010 as a hoster.  The issue was after following various posts, documents and so on, I could enable the Office Web Apps on the main site collection but not our organisation as a test tenant.  We are running SharePoint 2010 feature pack.  

When attempting to add the office feature pack, we would run in to a problem:

Enable-SPFeature : Failed to activate feature 'MobileExcelWebAccess' (id: 'e995e28b-9ba8-4668-9933-cf5c146d7a9f').  To figure out if this was just an issue with the Enterprise Feature MobileExcelWebAccess, I decided to enable the feature for standard temporarily and discovered a range of services that needed to be added to the feature pack.

So after much thinking about this, we felt that Office Web Apps should be available as a separate feature pack for Foundation, Standard or Enterprise rather than adding to the existing feature packs and migrate the customer, so long as the customer has the correct SPLA or Volume License.  

Based on this, we created 3 new feature packs that supported Office Web Apps.  For those who have grappled with this same concept, here are the feature ID's you need to add to t
