Cannot get past "SharePoint version requirement for PowerPivot for SharePoint failed"

Answers

  • Finally tracked down the problem though I'm not quite sure how it came about. 

    Although I was using the Enterprise server trial intallation and the key provided on the download site, the registry was showing Sharepoint Foundation as installed.  Initially this was the case but that version was uninstalled before CTP3.  I "corrected" the registry and the Denali install worked OK.  I had to correct again after apply SP1 as the edition in the registry changed back to Foundation.

    I suspect that at some point I'm going to have to wipe the server and start afresh

  • Hi,

     

    Please verify at witch point of Sql Server setup the error shows up. 

    The setup support Rules normally should show where the problem is.

  • The error appears at the "Installation Rules" step of SQL Server installation, after "Feature Selection" and before "Instance Configuration".  It's the first line of the block below.

    SharePoint Enterprise evaluation is installed but doesn't seem to be recognised as such

    Any ideas on how to fix this would be appreciated.  I'm obviously missing a step or a configuration but I can't see what it might be

Ensure internet connection to Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 download center on this computer. If you do not want to open up the internet connection, as a workaround pre-install Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 on this computer before running SQL Server setup.

  • Hi Gaskina,

    Can you share which keys you have changed in order to pass thru this error. I installed by mistake a standard edition of SP, then uninstalled it and installed a DataFarm version.

    Maybe I can go without reinstalling everything again?

    Regards

  • Hi,

    I have a similar issue.

    First I installed Sharepoint 2010, SP1 and the SQL 2012 RC, followed by powerpivot for Sharepoint. However something didnt go right with my reporting serbvices install, and it wouldnt show up as a farm service in sharepoint. So I uninstalled everything, rebooted.

    Then again installed sharepoint 2010, followed by SP1. Now I try to install SQL 2012 RC and its stuck on this check about incorrect sharepoint version.

    Any pointers?

    Thanks
