I was looking forward to play with this (new) toy but can't get anything working...

I have installed
- Office 2010 with Excel 32 bits
- Sql Server 2008 R2
- PowerPivot 10.50.2500.0 (the one coming with 2008R2 I think)
- Sql Denali ctp3

When I try to open the "PowerPivot Window" on a brand new spreadsheet, I get various error messages:
- Embedded Analysis Services Engine: Could not open embedded PowerPivot data. (twice)
- Then an option to "Do Nothing" or "remove the PowerPivot data"

Finally, I get an error message "Unable to load the Vertipaq Engine".

Any idea what I could do to fix this?

Should I install PowerPivot from Denali CTP3 instead of 2008R2?

I have already tried
- uninstal PowerPivot
- reboot
- re-install PowerPivot

But no joy so far...

Any idea welcome! :-)

The PowerPivot that comes off the SQL Server installation media is intended for integration with SharePoint. For Excel itself (locally on your desktop), you need to download a plug-in from www.powerpivot.com. Did you do this?

Make sure you download and install the 32-bit plug-in, as you have Office 32-bit. Even if you have a 64-bit OS!

Try installing the Denali version of PowerPivot. After installing SQL Server Denali CTP3 on my PC I also received this error when trying to use the SQL 2008 R2 version of PowerPivot.

Thanks Derek, I'll try that as soon as I get a minute.

Seems to make sense
