VS2012 Pro environment, with the SQL2012 support for Analysis Services installed (including the Aug.2013 update for SSDT).
Trying to open an Excel/Powerpivot which should be straightforward.
But still I'm unable to connect to the server and when I goto Tools>Options>Analysis Services Tabular Designers - I see "localhost" as the default server and the "Test Connection"
button produces a fail each time.
Tried changing localhost to my machine's name and dozens of other permutations but still unable to connect.
