Excel 2013 PowerPivot or PowerView add-ins are not available


We have had reports of the Microsoft Excel 2013 PowerPivot or PowerView add-ins not loading in the ribbon.

When users then try to add the add-ins (File > Options > Add-ins) by browsing to the .dll’s in the COM dialog, they are not added as expected.

This problem can occur when using tools for migration, such as AppSense, and all personalization settings are not captured.

 

RESOLUTION:

Follow the steps in the article below to allow Excel to rebuild the registry keys that are necessary for these add-ins.

    I have this problem but neither of the HKEY Current userlines for Win 8 are there. This problem has existed for 2 of 3 my PC’s since installation. The other 1 has no issues. Have made several calls to MS without luck (transferred many times – see Issue No# 1231686119). Where to for here???? Any help would be appreciated.

    I have Office 365 Small Business Premium. PowerPivot does not show in the COM options of the Add-on menu for Excel 2013. How do I get PowerPivot?
