Post subject: (Advanced) Analysis dll problem after installation

I'm posting in the forum, as I'm not allowed to post in 'Other Products' and my problem doesn't apply to any of the sub-forums' topics.

When I install Advanced Analysis I get an error about a dll file, BiXllFunctions, having failed to registe, meaning the whole add-in tab simply doesn’t show in Excel (2007), when I start the application through the Analysis shortcut. In PowerPoint, however, the extra tab does show up, but when trying to connect to my BOE XI 3.1 system, none of the connections to my cubes are visible, whereas in InfoView they are. Even though Windows Server 2008 is supported, I decided to try over on Windows 7 64-bit, hoping it was some sort of glitch, but the same occurs.

Additionally, I have a question. Is there a way to use Advanced Analysis without having PowerPoint installed? It seems you have to have it installed (in Office 2007), even if you only want to use Excel, because it throws a PowerPoint related error when starting Analysis for Excel. The only remedy for me was to also install PowerPoint. Also, you cannot choose to between versions for PowerPoint or Excel when installing the add-in, which leads me to believe that you have to have both Excel and PowerPoint installed (2007).
