Thumbnails in FAST search results RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a SharePoint 2010 farm and FAST for SharePoint 2010 installed on another server.  The search capabilities with FAST are working well.  However, I wanted to have the preview images for Word and PowerPoint documents enabled, so I installed Office Web Apps after the fact.  I'm trying to get the thumbnails to appear but haven't succeeded.  What are the steps to get the thumbnails to appear if you install the Office Web Apps server after installing FAST and SharePoint 2010?  After Office Web Apps was installed, I ran the SharePoint config wizard as instructed, but still no dice.

    Thank you in advance.

  • Hi,

    Document thumbnails in FAST search are managed through the use of SharePoint Office Web Applications so thumbnails and preview are only available for Office file types.
