at the beginning , idecied to use office 2007 on servers !!
but some good person gave me link for microsoft recommending their customers to dont install office 2007 on servers !!
i need to make some converts for Office files (Specially for PDF) , and i saw microsoft said that to find Libraries to do that rather than using office 200, i have searched on the net and found no library can do that without installing office
who can help me in this problem ( convert from docx,xlsx,pptx to pdf is required)

Office PIA library just acts as interface b/w application and office components. You still need to install office 2007 on the server.

But still the fact remains, that you shouldn't use Microsoft.Office.Interop on a web server!
"Microsoft does not currently recommend, and does not support, Automation of Microsoft Office applications from any unattended, non-interactive client application or component (including ASP, ASP.NET, DCOM, and NT Services), because Office may exhibit
unstable behavior and/or deadlock when Office is run in this environment."
Also read this:
A quote form this article what you might experience:
"EXCEL.EXE insisted in being alive in task manager even after processing the data and being closed in code. Each call to process a spreadsheet opens an EXCEL.EXE process on the server. With such EXCEL.EXE processes don’t being closed as they should you
get lots of those processes on memory which could overload the server."
And what about installing Office on your server, does your license allow you to do that?
