Issues with Office Documents in Sharepoint Foundations 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We recently upgraded to Sharepoint Foundations 2010 from Sharepoint V3.0.  When I did the install of Sharepoint Foundations 2010, there was no mention of Office Web Apps in the Technet article.  Now when our users try to open a document from Sharepoint, then make changes and try to save back by just clicking on the "Save" button, they get an error stating that the upload failed or that the document is open in "Read Only".  After searching for a month for an answer, I believe I need to install Office Web Apps for Sharepoint but have yet to find an article that explains how to do it.  I've found the articles on 2013 but not 2010.  The article on 2013 asks that I do things in the Sharepoint Foundations server but when I follow them, the options are not there.  If anyone has any experience adding in the Office Web Apps to Sharepoint, I would sure appreciate some assistance.
