Is the bit version (32 or 64) of your excel 2007 same as the downloaded power bi publisher?

Re: Power BI Publisher Installation Error

I'm trying to install the 64 bit version, however I'm getting the message that it requires Microsoft Excel 2007 and above.

I'm using the Office 2016 64 bit version.

 

Update 2018-01-08: I reinstalled office 2016 64 bit (en-us) and now the installation of Publisher went succesfull.

Re: Power BI Publisher Installation Error

Same here!

 

I installed the 32 bit version for office 2016 32 bit and that worked fine.

 

However, I uninstalled both products (publisher and office) and installed the office 2016 64 bit version.

When I'm trying to install the publisher 64 bit version I'm receiving the message that it requires Microsoft Excel 2007 or above.

 

Could some give me a hint how I'm able to solve this?

 

I tried restarting my machine and removed the registery key for Power BI Publisher, but without success.

 

Update 2018-01-08: I reinstalled office 2016 64 bit (en-us) and now the installation of Publisher went succesfull.
