Why is the 'View in browser'link appearing In my search results? OWA is installed in the farm but isn't associated with the web application in question. The office web apps feature is deactivated at site collection level and the 'open in client app' feature is activated. Link is appearing for Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents.
When a user clicks on this link to open a document, it screen sits for a while and then displays an error saying it could open the file. If I associate the equivalent service app in configure service associations it works but I don't want to. Can I just get rid of the link or why is it rendering?
