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
- re-install PowerPivot
But no joy so far...
Any idea welcome! 🙂
