    Hello Zubair, we actually worked together long ago at Aris. I have clients asking about the release of Office Online Server. There’s not word from MS. Do you have any insights you can pass along?

    Hi Bob,

    Office Online Server is expected to be released along with SharePoint Server 2016 sometime in May 2016 but there’s a chance that it might be delayed a few weeks. Nice to hear from you. Hope all is well.

    once installed, how can you test it? i am using a virtual machine, with no office on it, and i thought i should be able to see a preview of the doc in search and then open it in the browser.

    i am running a virtual machine with win7 32bit to simulate end users, perhaps it’s that.

    Hi, Is there any way to see the preview of documents without installing the OOS in SharePoint 2016?
