    Can't connect to a local cube file

    Peter Lammers

      I am using a trial of current Tableau Desktop version. I have tried this on Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 machines. I have downloaded the supercube sample cube file and associated driver from Tableau.

      I installed the driver and when I try to connect to the cube I get an error message about it not being able to find the server (I assume analysis server) and there is a note about not being able to access the file because it is in use by another process. I installed Analysis Server and tried to connect to the cube file and get the same message about the file being in use by another process.

      I didn't do anything with the file other than download it from Tableau site and unzip it.


      So I don't know if I need Analysis Services installed or not. I get an error either way so I need more help than getting that answered. Can anyone help me with this?
