Ok, I just wiped everything and tried again. I got no log during the installation. The connector does not show up in Excel. I manually ran the adxregistrator.exe which generates the following:

(same problem jstarkey posted in October). I’m on a 64bit windows 7 box, UAC is disabled. I found a post on a similar topic on another website advising regregistering atl.dll. Didn’t think it would work, but I ran it any way. I was right, it didn’t seem to do anything.
About the only other thing I can think of is that VisualStudio 2010 is on-box. This shouldn’t cause any problems, but it’s another vairable, i suppose.
