I have recently received countless request on providing more information regarding Excel Services installation on a Server Machine (Windows 2003). In this blog post, I will outline a quick overview of a Standalone installation for both 32 bits and 64 bits. A Standalone configuration implies that all the components of Excel Services are placed on a single machine (WFE, ECS, SQL DB).
Though this is a very high level view of the installation, it should be sufficient for most standalone deployments. some users may experience issues with Trusted Location, SSP creation, Site Collection creation, and other minor configurations. I will write other entries to address these issues in the near future.
Once again, I love getting feedback from users. If you have any comments, suggestions, or questions regarding Excel Services, please let me know.
