Missing Office Client Applications web part category


You are attempting to implement the Excel Web Access (EWA) web part on a SharePoint Server 2010 page.  You activate the SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection features; you then activate SharePoint Server Enterprise Site features, for the specific site.  When you then set a page into Edit mode and attempting to insert the web part, the Office Client Applications category does not appear.  To resolve this, you even perform the Enable all sites in this installation to use the following set of features... action in Central Administration; and you perform manual installations of the PremiumSite feature using PowerShell or stsadm.  However, the Office Client Applications category still does not appear.  When you go to the Web parts gallery, this category does not appear either.


The issue may not in fact be technical at all.  If you have performed all of the usual preparatory steps for making the Office Client Applications available, and the Office Client Applications category still doesn't appear, look under the Business Data web part category and you may find them there:
