Cannot see DAX Studio in Excel 2010


I have attempted to install DAX Studio, installation seemed to have completed correctly, however I do not see the DAX Studio add-in. I have checked to see that the Add-in tab is shown in Excel options but it doesn't show.

Hi, we have had another report of the install appearing to succeed but the add-in not displaying.

Are you using 32 or 64 bit?

Have you checked the disabled add-ins?

Is the Add-ins tab displayed at all?

Can you try having a look in the ribbon customization screens to see if you can find the Dax Studio button? you might then be able to add the button to one of the other ribbons.

Thanks for your reply.
I am using Excel 32 bit.
I have checked for disabled add-ins.
Add-ins tab is not displayed at all (but if I have Developer tab shown, which i do there is an add in section. But DAX Studio is not in either Add-ins or COM Add-ins)
I looked at the ribbon customization screens and do not show any Dax Studio buttons or

Any resolution to this??

Sorry, not at the moment. I don't know what's causing your issue or how to reproduce it. The only other person that reported an issue said that the add-in was installed but their Add-ins ribbon was not displaying. Moving the Dax Studio button to another ribbon got them functioning.

I have fixed this. You can close this issue.

That's great news. Are you able to tell us exactly what you did to fix this so that we can either improve the code or suggest your fix to anyone else who might get the same issue?
