Cannot Open Dax Studio 2.6.0 from Excel 2016


As the title says, I cannot open Dax Studio (v.2.6.0) from Excel 2016. The add-in is disabled and not working.

The Installer did not download the config files, so I got them from the zip file located on issue# 43363.

This still did not fix my problem and have included the text file from the Checker.

I have tried to read/find any other related issues and cannot find any.

I would appreciate any help I can get!! Thanks.

I have attached a snip from what the excel add-in window looks like.

ALSO... I tried to download previous versions and see if that worked...
  1. It would allow it to open
  2. but not detect a powerpivot model (or workbook for that matter).

Sorry for the delay in responding. I'm helping run the local SQL Saturday this coming weekend. I'll try to find some time the following week to investigate this further.

We still don't know what's causing this issue, but the beta of version 2.7 is available on my OneDrive here!AnSKp2UbblSYgZlNWkrpq3eInReMNg It has a crash reporting component and if you hold down the left SHIFT key while starting Excel it should enable debug logging (more details can be found in the release notes in the OneDrive link
