This blog post is meant to document how I solved an error while trying to import KPI’s to Performance Point 2010 Dashboard Designer from SSAS 2012 Multidimensional cube. The error said “An unexpected error occurred.. details have been logged for your administrator”. Here are the details:
3) And via SPTraceVIew, I was able to see the message: ” An unexpected error occurred. Error 47205. Exception details: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly ‘Microsoft.AnalysisServices, Version=10.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91’ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. File name: ‘Microsoft.AnalysisServices, Version=10.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91’ at Microsoft.PerformancePoint.Scorecards.Server.ImportExportHelper.GetImportableAsKpis(DataSource asDataSource) at Microsoft.PerformancePoint.Scorecards.Server.PmServer.GetImportableAsKpis(DataSource dataSource) ”
4) I checked that the Microsoft.AnalyisServices dll was present at c:/windows/assembly
5) What I didn’t realize was that the version number was different. The version that I had on my machine was 11 while the message clearly mentioned that it required 10. Thanks to this tip here: Creating scorecard error
6) So I followed the instructions that was on the MSDN forum thread and installed the AMO with version 10 via “Microsoft SQL Serer 2008 feature pack, April 2009”
7) And after installing the version 10 of the AMO, I was able to import KPI’s from SSAS 2012 multidimensional cube!

Q2) Where is the Data Stored?
If i just say “Google Cloud” that would not be a complete answer. There’s a complementary service called “Google CLOUD SQL” and so I do not want you to confuse data stored for BigQuery with “Google cloud SQL”.Theres’ a difference between BigQuery and Google cloud SQL, you can read that here: https://developers.google.com/bigquery/docs/overview
Having said that, it’s stored on Google’s cloud and if you wish to use BigQuery – you’ll have to upload your data-set in a CSV format and if you do so, it’s stored in Google cloud and is ready to be analyzed via BigQuery.
Q3) Where do I find lots of data to play with BigQuery?
Google has few sample data-sets that you can play with:
That’s about it for this post. Thanks Shadab Shah for the questions, I hope this post is useful.
I recently learned how to include charts in visual studio 2008 express edition. If you want to do the same then you need do following things: 1) Get visual studio 2008 Express SP1 or higher version 2) Upgrade to .net 3.5 sp1 (if you use lower version of .net) 3) Download Microsoft chart controls : Download Link and then install it.
After you are done with Installing a ‘charts’ option will appear in the Data Tab in Toolbox. If you still do not see it you will need to add
