Office Online Server on Windows Server 2016: 'InkandHandwritingServices' was not found

Problem

When installing Office Online Server on Windows Server 2016, and using the Add-WindowsFeature script provided on all of the installation instruction articles, such as this, you will get error

Add-WindowsFeature : ArgumentNotValid: The role, role service, or feature name is not valid: 'InkandHandwritingServices'. The name was not found.

Solution

Windows Server 2016 doesn’t contain Ink And Handwriting Services, so omit that from the Add-WindowsFeature command. So, working script for WS2016 is:

Add-WindowsFeature Web-Server,Web-Mgmt-Tools,Web-Mgmt-Console,Web-WebServer,Web-Common-Http,Web-Default-Doc,Web-Static-Content,Web-Performance,Web-Stat-Compression,Web-Dyn-Compression,Web-Security,Web-Filtering,Web-Windows-Auth,Web-App-Dev,Web-Net-Ext45,Web-Asp-Net45,Web-ISAPI-Ext,Web-ISAPI-Filter,Web-Includes,NET-Framework-Features,NET-Framework-Core,NET-HTTP-Activation,NET-Non-HTTP-Activ,NET-WCF-HTTP-Activation45
