Master Data Services 2016 Excel Add-in - Crashes Excel 2016 on Startup RRS feed

  • Question

  • Has anyone found an issue with the Master Data Services 2016 Excel-add in ( x64 ) causing Excel 2016 x64 to crash continually at start-up ?

    I'm running Windows 10 Enterprise Version 10.0.10586 Build 10586

    Excel is 2016 x64 running under Office 365 ProPlus

    MDS Excel Add-in version 13.0.2121.20 (x64)

    I also have the required .netframework versions and Visual Studio 2010 runtime installed.   Tried it on a Windows 7 machine with the same version of Excel and MDS plug-in without any issues; tried it on another Windows 10 Laptop and the issue occurred again.

    Event Log errors:

    Microsoft Excel: Rejected Safe Mode action : Excel is running into problems with the 'microsoft.masterdataservices.exceladdin' add-in. If this keeps happening, disable this add-in and check for available updates. Do you want to disable it now?

    Ran the VSTO manually and get the following:

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks :)

  • Hi GM_Azure,

    According to your description, after install Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Master Data Services Add-in For Microsoft Excel, you cannot open an excel file, right?

    Based on my research, the issue can be caused by that the add-in file is corrupt. Where do you download this add-in? Please try to uninstall this add-in, and reinstall it. Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Master Data Services Add-in For Microsoft Excel is available on the link below.

  • Hi,

    Same error, Windows 10 Enterprise (all latest updates) with Excel 2016 x64 and Master Data Services add-in from below link (ID 52677).

    What is the solution?

    [Edit 28 november 2018 : no answer, no update. MDS is dead?]

    Regards,

    Denis
