Supported environment


I've 2 questions concerning a planned environment:

1. Serverside: Windows 2003 Server, IIS 6, no Office

Cientside: Windows XP, Office 2003 (Word), IE6.0 (SP2)

Does this work properly?

2. Is it necessary to have OFFICE 2003 (or an viewer) on serverside?

Kind regards


Hi Gunter,

No, it is not necessary to have MS Word on server. Aspose.Word enables .NET applications to read, modify and write Word documents without utilizing Microsoft Word. The only thing you may need MS Word for is to design the templates. But this can be done on computer other than the server.
