I assume you've matched on 32-bit or 64-bit. You might post the specific error here and someone might recognize a solution.
I've tried both. My laptop is 64 bit. I am unsure of the server, so I have tried both.
Are you trying to connect through the SSAS data pump or directly to the SSAS server?
From the same laptop, are you able to connect to the SSAS server directly (or through the pump) via Excel?
