Pros & Cons to installing Office (Word) on a Windows Server 2003
Posted on 2008-06-16
I've got a little question. Are there any constraints why one should not install Microsoft Office, MS Word in particular onto a Server running MS Windows Server 2003? I know that it's better not to install Outlook, but are there any real arguments for installing (or not installing) other Office applications on a server with regards to e.g. reliability, known issues, ...
The server won't be used as a TS. There's a custom application running on it an it would need Word, Excel in order to create documents. (Users connect to a web-application running on that server)
Any input is very much appreciated!
