    Hi Wictor,

    I´ve installed the 2013 Aug CU (KB2817521) to our WAC farms (both test and production) and I got version 15.0.4420.1017. That totally different from what you got after installing the same KB (15.0.4535.1000). How come the numbers aren´t the same?

    Have you faced an issue where Word Web App returns "Sorry, we ran into a problem" after PDF binding feature is enabled and October Hotfix (KB 2825665)for SharePoint server installed?
    Excel Web App opens without any exceptions, but the word/pdf documents keep failing.
    Perhaps it's resolved in any of the consecutive updates?

    Hi Wictor,

    FYI, the version number of Office Web Apps 2013 SP1 is not correct. To be more precise, it is the version of the regressed SP1. Microsoft has re-release SP1 in the meantime, with version number 15.0.4571.1502.
    See here for details:
