Given my happiness at finally seeing PowerView in Excel, I had to nitpick. However, I did have two thoughts about the install sequence:
There seems to be no ‘dependency checker’ prior to the installation sequence.
.NET Framework Dependency
Power View (and many other things as well!) needs the Microsoft .NET framework, version 3.5 as a minimum. You can install Office 2013 without the .NET Framework version 3.5, but you will soon get the following error message:
Power View in Office 2013 does still need Silverlight, but this isn’t included as part of the Installation Sequence. Perhaps this should be included as part of a ‘dependency checker’, like the .NET framework?
If you don’t install Silverlight, you will get a message in the ‘Information Bar’.
I will submit the feedback more officially via Connect, when I can see where to do it 🙂 and will post the links here.
I hope that helps!
