Excel 2013 - PowerPivot is unable to load the Data Model

    Question

  • I intermittently have some issues with PowerPivot in Excel 2013 Preview.  Most recently, I am getting the error "PowerPivot is unable to load the Data Model" and I have not found a way to work around it.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  • A Quick Repair of "Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus Preview - en-us" seems to have resolved that error message.  However, my setting of turning the PowerPivot add-in on is not sticking; i.e., I have to turn it on every time I start Excel (and want to use it).  Any suggestions?

    Hi JSA1987,

    It seems you encountered a new issue. Generally, the PowerPivot for Excel add-in should load automatically. From your description, it seems the PowerPivot add-in load failed. I recommend you refer to the following blog to troubleshoot this issue, espesially "Find your problem" section:
    My Office Addin does not Load: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/haahmadi/archive/2010/05/26/my-vsto-add-in-does-not-load.aspx

    Furthermore, you can aslo ask the same question in Office 2013 and Office 365 ProPlus forum for better support.

  • Thank you for your help.  I checked into that and it appears the registry entry does not exist for this add-in.  Any further suggestions would be appreciated.  I will try asking over on that other forum.

  • My issue appears to be resolved after a full (and time-consuming!) repair.
