Installing Power Query RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am a student and am using Office 365 for students. I have Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Access, Publisher 2013 as part of the office suite and Visio for my Engineering work. They are all up to date and 2013 64-bit editions. I used to preview Data Explorer for Excel which ran without much hiccups but was told to update today. However, installing Power Query for Excel gave me errors about the wrong version of excel installed on my machine. Please help. Thanks!

    With the latest Power Query update, Office 2013 Professional Plus is required. Please look at the installation instructions/requirements for more information (link).

  • Hi ThinkMantle,

    Thanks for reporting this issue. Could you please download the Power Query MSI to your local disk and run the following instruction from a command window?

    > PowerQuery.msi /l*vx log.txt

    The generated log.txt file should have useful information for us to debug. Feel free to post it here or send it to us via email at monuxfb [a.t]

  • I have the identical issue.  I am running Excel 2013 Professional Plus and am unable to install based on the same error.

  • I found that I had an earlier version of Power Query installed.  I uninstalled this from Control Panel and was able to successfully re-install the newest release.
