Well the wait is over.  It is now released, for real.  No longer a beta or RC.  The real deal.

    1. Nope, the cool stuff I saw in Redmond (and mentioned on twitter) was other stuff. New stuff. Secret stuff I can’t talk about, except to say that there is some cool stuff coming 🙂

  1. Hi guys,

    I have a question. my IT crew installed the new version today. but now I cannot open any workbooks anymore. addin shows up, but as soon as a try to start the powerpivot window it says “Embedded Analysis Services Engine: Could not load embedded PowerPivot data.” I first thought it would be an issue if upgrading v1 workbooks, but it is not – it starts with any empty workbook. so I cannot even built a new one from scretch.
    anyone who had a similar problem – maybe something gone wrong with the upgrade. is there something that needs to be done when installing the new version?
    hope anyone could help.

    thanks a lot
