Powerpivot 2013 doesn't work on Excel 2013 / Office 365: data model issue


  • Hi guys

    I recently upgraded my Office 2010 to Office 365, with Excel 2013. Before installing Office 365 I uninstalled Office 2010. I'm running Windows 8 64 bits.

    I have the Powerpivot 2013 add-in, I can activate it without any issue. However when I click on "manage" on any spreadsheet (including new empty ones) I have an error "We couldn't load the Data Model.  This may be because the Data Model in this workbook is damaged.", followed by "PowerPivot is unable to load the Data Model".

    I tried to repair the installation to no avail. I tried to launch excel in admin mode, nothing better.

    This issue seems to be shared by some other people on this forum but with no satisfactory answer so far.

    I had a SQL server 2012 plugin installed previously which I uninstalled as well, but no change.

    Would you think of something else?
