Office Web Apps Server 2013 Installation

Posted: 12th February 2014 by Gennady in SharePoint

Excel Services allows to view Excel files in browser, but for complete edit You need Office Web Apps

Installation is described here, author is Steve Mann. In my case I also needed to install – there was problem enabling in “Programs and Features”, so I enabled it from cmd:

C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_regiis.exe –i


First check that Your machines could ping each other. If not – turn off the firewall:

netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state off

Second tip is – if You need to have access documents from internet – deploy the farm on two urls from the beginning:

New-OfficeWebAppsFarm –InternalURL http://apps –ExternalURL –AllowHttp -EditingEnabled
