  • Hi Miguel

    I've got the same issue as alaeddin when trying to install Power Query (32 bit) on my computer. I've checked all microsoft requirements and didn't find any related failure. I've try to overcome this by uninstall and reinstall my microsoft office 2013 unsuccesfully.

    I'll, thus, be glad you could give me a hand to solve this issue.

    Beste regards.
