Re: PIA installation - requisites and licence issue



The PIAs only contain metadata to allows the .NET managed runtime to
call unmanaged code in the Microsoft Office COM-based API (a skeleton
of the types that are available)

So yes you are going to need a license for the real products on your
server.

Hi there,

probably a usual question:
Can I set up the PIA Office2003 on a windows server without having an
office application?
If so, is that free or do I need a licence?

Thanks very much for your help,

Chris
