SharePoint 2013 and office web apps; the hidden truth about how to install!

23 07 2013

I make it a habit to write about things that trip me up about SharePoint and almost always, I have had a pretty good idea as to why. But, this time I have come across something that I do not understand.
OFFICE WEB APPS 2013 DOES NOT LIKE TO BE INSTALLED ON ANYTHING BUT THE C DRIVE.

Yes ladies and gentlemen, installing office web apps 2013 on the d: drive will not fully work. Word Web app will start to work and then hang for 5 minutes and tell you that the service is busy.

The only known fix that i have come across is to uninstall owa, unbind, then reinstall on the c drive, rebind and bingo it works.

Why? I have no idea.

Hope this helps you guys out.
