View in Browser” does not work only for PowerPoint files and Document Preview has not been working in SharePoint 2013



View in Browser” does not work only for PowerPoint files and Document Preview  has not been working in SharePoint 2013.

Issue: View in Browser” does not work only for PowerPoint files  but its working for Excel files and Document Preview  has not been working.

Solution: As long as we don’t have Office Web Apps installed in a  dedicated server, we will not have this “View in Browser” function for all Office documents. 


PowerPoint Conversion Service Application is to handle PPTX to PDF conversion and not for browser rendering.

Uninstall of Cumulative Updates for SharePoint



Uninstall of Cumulative Updates for SharePoint

I am posting this topic because I am getting many questions from SharePoint Techies that they want to uninstall the CU updated to their farms.

Is it possible: There is no easy way to uninstall a cumulative update package for SharePoint. SharePoint updates are really a one-way street: you can only go forward with them and there's no way to uninstall, roll back, or remove them once you've started the installation process

Reasons: The reason for this is that there are two components to the update process

1)   updating the SharePoint bits installed on each SharePoint server
2)   updating the schemas and configuration of the farm's databases in its SQL Server instances. 

If you uninstall the bits from your SharePoint servers, those databases are still going to be functioning at the level of the applied CU and will not work with your servers
