Errors while installing power pivot for excel RRS feed

  • Question

  •  "Setup is missing prerequisites: This add-in requires Excel 2010. If you have 32-bit Excel, you must install the 32-bit version of the add-in. If not, you must install the 64-bit version. Go to http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=54583"

    I am getting above error while installing powerpivot. I am using SQL Server 2008R2(32bit) and Office 2010 (32bit)--winodws 7,32bit.

    any suggestions to overcome this problem. I appreciate your time in advance.

    I finally got the add on to install.  The key was to run an msiexec from the command prompt as an administrator.  Here are the steps to follow if anybody faces this problem:

    1.       Select Start and type cmd in the search box

    2.       Right click on the cmd icon and select ‘Run as administrator’

    3.       Enter the msiexec/i  <path to you install file>

    4.       Hit enter and follow the install wizard
