Office Web Apps Server 2013 on Windows Server 2012 Core RRS feed

  • Question

  • Could not find information about support of Office Web Apps Server 2013 on Windows Server 2012 'Core' installation - for my point of view it should work. How is your experience?

    What is Microsoft's Statement of support on this kind of setup?

  • Compare the "Server Core Installation" to the "Server with a GUI" installation, refer to the TechNet article Windows Server Installation Options, there is no special service absent that will affect the Office Web Apps Server 2013.

  • Hi,

    From the Office Web Apps 2013 Software Requirement TechNet Article don't see a note on Windows Server 2012 Core and copied a reference

    Supported operating systems for Office Web Apps Server

    You can run Office Web Apps Server on the following operating systems:

    • The 64-bit edition of  Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1) Standard, Enterprise, or Datacenter with KB2592525 installed

    • The 64-bit edition of  Windows Server 2012 Standard or Datacenter

  • Hi,

    I have tried installing Windows Server 2012 Standard, and then remove GUI.

    Remove-WindowsFeature Server-Gui-Shell, Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra

    After removing GUI and server reboot, it seems that you can not run Office Web Apps 2013\setup.exe , it instantly get some error about missing office files etc. So lets get back GUI.

    Add-WindowsFeature Server-Gui-Shell, Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra

    After getting back back GUI and server reboot, it seems that setup.exe is normally running.

    So, officially there is no exact documentation which says it is or it is not supported. But regarding to my tests you can have a clue :)
