How To Use Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel Without Installing Microsoft Office

My server administrator does not allow me to install Microsoft Office in the server.

I have developed a website which converts XML files to Excel and it is using Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.

Is there any way I can run this application without installing Microsoft Office in the server?

C# - Why Does Web Application Timeout Using Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word
I have been using using Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word in my webserver (yes, i know it is not recommended). When I ran it on my machine, it runs fine, but when running on the server I get a timeout on the following line:Documents.Open //when trying to open the file.Is there something I'm missing? Is there a better way to edit a Word document within web servers/websites? (I can't create a new one using string builder or outputting into file; I need to edit an existing one that sits on the server.)

VS 2008 Could Not Load File Or Assembly 'Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word / How To Fix This Error
I am having an issue that I do not quite understand. I had an ASP project that I built using


<add assembly="Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71E9BCE111E9429C"/>

while I still had Office 2007 still on my development PC. I recently upgraded to Office 2010 and even though the web.config file still remains with the above assembly reference, when I publish it and run it now i keep getting the following error ...


Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

I also have installed the PIA for Version= on the server but I still get the same result.

Unable To Import "Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word"
I am developing an application in .aspx in which the entered data is to be written in a word file,if the file exists then the content will be appended else it willcreate a new doc file.

In order to do so,the steps and the code that i have followed is as follows

1)Added reference --Microsoft Word 10.0 Object Library

2)In the Code behind page i have first imported the following

Imports System.Runtime.InteropServices,Imports Microsoft.Office,Imports Microsoft.Office.Core

But the problem arises when i am trying to import

Imports Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word (as i am only able to access uptill Microsoft.Office.Core)

3) Ihave then tried toaccomplish the taskImporting only"Microsoft.Office.Core" namespace

By writing the following sample

Dim oWordApp
As New Word.ApplicationClass(Error line)
Dim oWordDoc
As New Word.Document
Dim filename

Using Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word To Convert Uploaded Word Documents Into Previewable Html Files?
I'm hoping this is an easy one...I'm using Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word to convert uploaded word documents into previewable html files. I haven't implemented it fully, but I've played around with it enough that I think I have a plan that will work... My question revolves around


I'm not in love with the idea of opening word and closing it everytime there's an upload (which I hope is a lot of the time) I'd like to make this a shared object that loads at application start. I have 2 questions
that go along with this. 1. I imagine that winword could lock up and that would be a problem, right? 2. to save a document I use wordapp.ActiveDocument, thiscould have an issueas a shared object, right? I think I'm talking myself right out of this...

Running Into A .NET COMException With MS Office Interop?
I am trying to work with the Windows clipboard and Office Interop in an ASP.NET web application.Everything works well on my local machine running XP (i have created a Windows application first which ran perfectly well on local machine). Then I have executed it on a server running Windows Server 2003 and it worked there as well.Then I made a ASP.NET sample project and it worked on my local machine. However when this time I deployed it at the server, after banging my head with permissions, it started giving me this exception which i have no idea why it is doing this:

System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80048240):
Shapes (unknown member): Invalid request. Clipboard is empty or
contains data which may not be pasted here.
at Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.Shapes.Paste()

Is the problem with any sort of permissions again on clipboard? If yes, how can I grant appropriate permissions?

Merge Word Documents (Office Interop & .NET) - Keep Formatting
I'm having some difficulty merging multiple word documents together using Microsoft Office Interop Assemblies (Office 2007) and ASP.NET 3.5. I'm able to merge the documents, but some of my formatting is missing (namely the fonts and images). My current merge code is shown below.

private void CombineDocuments() {
object wdPageBreak = 7;
object wdStory = 6;
object oMissing = System.Reflection.Missing.Value;
object oFalse = false;
object oTrue = true;
string fileDirectory = @"C:documents";
Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Application WordApp = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Application();
Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Document wDoc = WordApp.Documents.Add(ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing);
string[] wordFiles = Directory.GetFiles(fileDirectory, "*.doc");
for (int i = 0; i < wordFiles.Length; i++) {
string file = wordFiles[i];
wDoc.Application.Selection.Range.InsertFile(file, ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oFalse);
wDoc.Application.Selection.Range.InsertBreak(ref wdPageBreak);
wDoc.Application.Selection.EndKey(ref wdStory, ref oMissing);
string combineDocName = Path.Combine(fileDirectory, "Merged Document.doc");
if (File.Exists(combineDocName))
object combineDocNameObj = combineDocName;
wDoc.SaveAs(ref combineDocNameObj, ref m_WordDocumentType, ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing);

I don't care necessarily how this is accomplished. It could output via PDF if it had to. I just want the formatting to carry over.
