Trying to install a fresh install of
SharePoint 2010 (w/ SP1) Enterprise Evaluation and
SQL Server 2012 PowerPivot for Sharepoint.
The prerequisites clearly show that
SharePoint 2010 SP1 is needed, which we have installed. However after when trying to install the SQL Server portion we consistently fail the rule
SharePoint version requirement for PowerPivot for SharePoint' validation in theSQL Server` install process.
It seems the Evaluation version of SharePoint EE 2010 does not put the correct version # in the registry and thus it causes the install to fail. However we are not ready to purchase a license without evaluating this tool to see if it meets our needs...
Here is the process we are following:
- install SharePoint 2010
- install SharePoint 2010 SP1
- install SQL Server 2012 PowerPivot for SharePoint
Here is a screen shot of the error and the log file error. We are completely stuck at this point, anyone run into this before?
This Article mentions an issue with the eval version of Sharepoint 2010 not correctly inserting the version into the registry but it does not mention how to fix this or work around..... if this helps anyone...
