Scenario:

Windows 2008 R2 Sp1 server – updated till August 2013

Office Web Apps Server 2013 – with Latest Patches.

 

  • Run through the default OWA installation.
  • Get to the stage of deploying the Office Web Apps Farm Configuration from PowerShell ran into the following issue:

  • This was weird since there was no error while deploying the binary for OWA. Tried installing the KB and the error pops up saying this update is not applicable on this server. Weird!!
  • So I extract the contents of the KB into a folder and then using “pkgrmgr” I was able to deploy the update by force onto the server.

  • Tried the script for the office web apps farm deployment and it worked this time J

     

    Deploying OWA 2013?
