I have 64-bit Power BI installed, but had 32 bit office already. When I tried to access an Excel file from Power BI, I got the attached message. I went ahead and installed the 32-bit Access database engine to match my Office install, but that is not compatible with 64-bit Power BI. It appears that Power BI and the Office install have to match to be able to open Excel documents in Power BI.
So…I went ahead and uninstalled the 32-bit Office version so that I could install 64-bit Office, and the appropriate Access Database engine. Now, when I go to install Office, it will not let me install the 64-bit version, only the 32-bit version.
I even installed the Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant, but it says that there are no Office products installed, so it appears that the 32-bit Office is completely gone, and the 64-bit version should be clear to install.
