This data source does not support exploring with a live connection

Hi,

I'm trying to connect live from a SQL Server Analysis Services Database (2012 x64 standard edition). When I click Ok on power bi desktop interface, with connect live option selected, receive the following message: "This data source does not support exploring with a live connection".

What's the problem?

 

Thanks in advance.

@Agennaretti Standard edition is not supported. Full detail here, but the relevant part is this.

  • Servers must be running SQL Server 2012 SP1 CU4 or later versions of Analysis Services for the Power BI Desktop SSAS MD connector to work properly
  • Only Enterprise and Business Intelligence editions of SQL Server are supported for MD connectivity
