Sharepoint Web Apps

I want to be able to open documents that are housed in SharePoint 2013 Foundations using Office Web app. Is this subscription based or a free app? Do I have to institute an app server?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It is free,  MIcrosoft has a guide for integrating it with Sharepoint

So it looks like I do need to start up an APP server. Looks pretty involved. Is this the case or just Microsoft being too verbose?
David Johnson, CD, MVPOwnerCommented:
They have to cover all bases which makes for the verbosity

We are a one server farm for sharepoint so not a big deployment here. Using SharePoint Foundations 2013. Taking a look now at the article you posted. This will more than likely create more questions. For instance, can I install the APP server on the same server that SharePoint is running on?
David Johnson, CD, MVPOwnerCommented:
it is not suggested or supported but may work.

When I go to check my installation by entering http://servername/hosting/discovery I get a HTTP 404 Not Found error. How do I even start to trouble shoot this. I've done most everything via PowerShell.
Robert MohrAuthor Commented:
OK. I changed the http://servername/hosting/discovery and now get a HTTP Error 500.19 - Internal Server Error instead.
I ran the following in PowerShell and the error still showed.

dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:IIS-ASPNET45

Anything thoughts how to trouble shoot?
Robert MohrAuthor Commented:
OK. I changed servers and was able to create the bindings Anyone know why I'm receiving this error when I attempt to open up an office document in SharePoint thru office webapps?
Robert MohrAuthor Commented:
This answered one question I had but ultimately I was still stopped with an error. I am going to reinstall both my webapps server and my sharepoint server to see if that helps get the MS Office WebApps up.
