I'm running Tableau x64 on Win 7 x64. I believe that the Analytical Services is v8, although I'm not sure if it is x32 or x64 (or if that even matters)
MS XML 6 is not actually a driver. Have you tried downloading and installing the actual OLEDB driver and not just the MS XML bits?
The Microsoft Analysis Services 2012 SP1 x64 download on the drivers download page should work fine (and be backwards compatible with previous versions of Analysis Services): Drivers & Activation | Tableau Software
Justin- thank you for your reply. It turns out that I didn't understand how Tableau set up their drivers page- the second column is labelled "Tableau Versions" and I thought that meant which Tableau version was needed to be able to access that type of data source. Turns out it really means "here is a link to a driver for that data source", which wasn't intuitive. Once I figured that out, I was able to connect to the MSAS cube. Thank you!
I've Microsoft Analysis Services of 2008 and 2012 version and I need to connect to both of them.
Does that mean I need to install two drivers of 2008 & 2012 separately and should I even install Microsoft XML 6 as well.
I just wanted to make sure that everything is fine before implementing. Any response is really appreciated.
Hi Prem- I'd suggest starting a new thread- I don't have the expertise to answer your question, other than suggesting that if it were me I'd install both drivers. I'm not sure what MSXML drivers you do have installed, or how that affects Tableau...
