EPM Add-in doesn't work

Hi BPC Friend

We have issues with one laptop to use the EPM Add-in properly.

The user can connect to the BPC Web page and for example process a dimension.

The user can con open a BPF and connect to excel and run a package but the tab EPM doesn't work properly because:

the user can't refresh a report, can't log on directly to bpc by log-on in the tab EPM and can't change the value for a dimension in the report

BPC gives the following errors:

The type initializer for 'FPMXLClient.ReportManagement.FormattingSheet' threw an exception.

Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Vbe.Interop.Forms, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

Please read this note:

Looks like you have to reinstall the office or copy the folder...

thanks a lot. we will try the following even if we have office 2013


From the note:

1. Install MS Office 2013 on a separate machine or check a working machine
2. In the folder %windir%\assembly\gac or %windir%\assembly\GAC_MSIL there will be a subfolder called : "Microsoft.Vbe.Interop.Forms"


yes this is what I said to the user to do


The user may not have rights to manipulate system folders...


On my PC this folder is here:
