I'm trying to Import a site using PowerShell via the command Import-SPWeb. During the import process I got a fatal error stating

"Could not find Feature MobilePowerPointViewer".

Since the destination Farm doesn't have Office Web Apps. I deactivated from the source Farm and re-exported the Site. I tried to import it again but now get a fatal error

"Could not find Feature ExcelServerEdit."

My question is how or where can disable this feature?


You can use PowerShell to identify the feature.

Get-SPFeature | Where-Object { $_.DisplayName -like "Excel*" }

You can disable feature using

Disable-SPFeature –identity "ExcelServerEdit" -URL http://webapp

  • Thanks @Amal-Hashim, this is what I ended up doing and it worked like a charm. So not all features would appear in the site collection features where you can disable or enable them manually? – xIIx PEGA xIIx Jan 28 '15 at 14:13
  • It depends on the Site Collection Template, the list of solutions activated on the web application and lot of other factors. – Amal Hashim Jan 28 '15 at 14:14
  • @AmalHashim I disabled the feature, again export site using power shell and tried to import but still I am getting the same error. I don't know what else to do. – Akhilesh Jan 16 '18 at 5:07
