Error: Setup cannot install SQL server PowerPivot for SharePoint on a SharePoint Foundation 2010 server

    Question

  • Hi

    We are facing the same issue. We installed the SharePoint 2010 (en_sharepoint_server_2010_x64_dvd_518634.iso downloaded from the Micro Soft site).

    When installing PowerPivot, we are getting the error like

    "Setup cannot install SQL server PowerPivot for SharePoint on a SharePoint Foundation 2010 server"

    The server has MS Winodws 2008 R2.

    we followed the steps like installing MS Sharepoint 2010 without configuring proceeded the PowerPivot for SharePoint

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks in advance

  • Hello Abbas,

    PowerPivot server requires Enterprise SharePoint server 2010 as it uses the features available only in Enterprise edition of SharePoint, such as Excel Web Services and Secure Store Services.
    Please verify that the SharePoint Server 2010 you’ve installed is Enterprise version instead of Standard version. 

    Thanks & Regards.

    Supported additions are Enterprise, Data Centre or Developer Edition I believe?
