MS Word Online RRS feed

  • Question

  • How does MS Office run online? 
    Obviously Microsoft Office is written in C++, but I understand C++ is not compatible for web browsers

    what changes had to happen to make the application run online in a web browser? 
    And how in general do you get C++ applications to run in web browsers?

  • I think that the on-line Word is not made directly in C++. It is a Web application. Since ‘.aspx’ appears in address bar, it is an ASP.NET application. In Edge or Internet Explorer, press <F12> to investigate it. You will see HTML, JavaScript, CSS, etc., which is specific for Web applications.

    Using tools like Visual Studio and having the corresponding knowledge and libraries, you can create similar Web application as an on-line counterpart of your desktop program.
