Does Office Web App 2013 work for skype for business 2019? RRS feed

  • Question

  • In the current 2013 environment, Office Web App 2013 is installed, and we wonder if we don’t need to install Office Online Server 2019 separately when using SFB 2019.

    Is it impossible to provide Office Web services in SfB 2019 with the original OWA 2013 Server already installed?

  • Hi eijer!

    Based on my knowledge, Microsoft documentation does not explicitly state if Skype for Business 2019 support Office Web App 2013. But we can ensure that Office Online Server is supported by Skype for Business Server.

    The following table shows the compatibility between Office Web App Server and Office Online Server with SharePoint Server, Exchange Server and Skype for Business Server.

    For more details, you can refer to:


    Regarding your second question, you can see if there are two new event logs in the Skype for Business Server 2019. First, an LS Data MCU event (event ID 41034) should be added, this event will report that the Office Web Apps Server has been discovered. In addition to that you should see another LS Data MCU event (event ID 41032) that reports back Office Web Apps Server URLs. If Office Web Apps Server appears to be configured correctly and has been recognized by the discovery process you can verify that Office Web Apps Server is working as expected by sharing a PowerPoint presentation between a pair of Skype for Business clients. For more details, you can refer to:
