Microsoft.Excel.AdomdClient.dll could not be found

Hi Gurus,

Just wondering where can I locate Microsoft.Excel.AdomdClient.dll?

I downloaded the source code and get "The referenced component 'Microsoft.Excel.AdomdClient' could not be found." error. Could you please help?

That file is distributed with Excel 2013 and is not installed in the GAC so this sort of issue is common when first trying to compile the source code on a new machine. You need to find this dll in you Program Files folder and change the project reference to point the location of this file on your system. Or I think if you copy this file to the "Daxtstudio/lib" folder that may be where the reference is currently expecting to find the file (although references paths are often stored as absolute paths in the project files so you still may need to update the reference)
