I intermittently have some issues with PowerPivot in Excel 2013 Preview. Most recently, I am getting the error "PowerPivot is unable to load the Data Model" and I have not found a way to work around it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Friday, March 01, 2013 6:11 PMA Quick Repair of "Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus Preview - en-us" seems to have resolved that error message. However, my setting of turning the PowerPivot add-in on is not sticking; i.e., I have to turn it on every time I start Excel (and want to use it). Any suggestions?

It seems you encountered a new issue. Generally, the PowerPivot for Excel add-in should load automatically. From your description, it seems the PowerPivot add-in load failed. I recommend you refer to the following blog to troubleshoot this issue, espesially "Find your problem" section:

Furthermore, you can aslo ask the same question in Office 2013 and Office 365 ProPlus forum for better support.

Thank you for your help. I checked into that and it appears the registry entry does not exist for this add-in. Any further suggestions would be appreciated. I will try asking over on that other forum.
