Addin won't show in Excel 2010

    Question

  • I have just installed the PowerPivot x86 add-in i downloaded from powerpivot.com. I installed excel from "en_office_professional_plus_2010_beta_x86_x16-19227" from msdn. But now the add-in won't show up in Excel, both installs went ok without a warning.

    Can anybody help me?

  • Based on the error message you are seeing, I believe you have only installed Excel when you installed office.  For Office Beta 2 / PowerPivot CTP3, you need to also install Office Shared Tools feature when you install Office.  You should:

    1. Uninstall PowerPivot
    2. Uninstall Office
    3. Reinstall Office, specifying at least Excel + Office Shared Tools
    4. Reinstall PowerPivot

  • Could you check File - Options - Add Ins and see if Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Modeler.FieldList.Addin.Integration is listed as an active Add In?

  • Ok, could you try to enable it?  Select "Disabled Items" in the dropdown at the bottom and press Go to get a list of disabled items (in the Add In dialog).

  • It's not at the disabled items, It's at the inactive items. When i go to Com Addins and check the "Microsoft.AnalysisService.Modeler.Fieldlist.Addin.Integration" nothing happens.

    But when i go to the Com Addins a second time a message "Not Loaded. The managed add-in loader failed to initialize."

    I run on Server 2008 with SP2 on Excel x86.

  • Have you installed the prereqs like .NET Framework 3.5 SP1?
    Is .NET Programmability Support installed for Excel (Add/Remove Programs / Change Office 2010 / check under Excel)?
