Cannot add Olap connection

Cannot add Olap connection

Cannot add Olap connection

Hello all,
I am working with Crystal Reports 2016 on a Windows 10 64 bits machine.
When I want to add a new Olap connexion to a CUB file by using the Microsoft OLEDB Provider for Analysis Services, I get the following error message:
"Failed to initialize; The current operation is not allowed for a restricted client connection".
Can somebody help?
Thank you,

RE: Cannot add Olap connection

Never tried that type of connection before. But from the error message. It appears it is a rights issue. Hopefully someone else here can provide a solution.

RE: Cannot add Olap connection

Do you have the 32-bit version of the Olap client installed? Crystal is 32-bit software so it won't work with a 64-bit data provider.
