Word WebApp and Word Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Presently we have a developed software which loads MS Word templates which can be used by our users.

    Basically, we create a template, load it into our software. Then threw our software our users can open that created template, fill out their info and save it back into our database.

    Our problem is when our users open the template, they use their local version of MS Word. So if they have 2003 installed, that's what they use. Same for 2007, or 2010. We've had to make many changes to our software because of the issues we've faced because of this problem.

    Our goal is to have a universal version of MS Word for everyone to use. No matter where we use our software, we'd like for all the users to use the same and specific version of MS Word. Is this possible with Word WebApp? We don't want and can not use skydrive. We would just like some sort of solution to point to a generic version of MS Word. Can we host Word WebApp on a sharepoint?

    Any help to this issue would be greatly appreciated.

    thank you.
