Unable to access the Microsoft Office Project Portfolio Analyzer OLAP cube.

I am in PWA and click on Admin, go to Manage Views, and then try to select the top view under Portfolio Analyzer views and I get the error message: Unable to access the Microsoft Office Project Portfolio Analyzer OLAP cube.

Now here's the deal... we've isolated it to an issue with my PC.. My boss logged into my notebook and was NOT able to view, though he is able to view it on his notebook.  I logged into his notebook with my windows account and was able to view it now.  I reinstalled the OWC11.exe that I downloaded from the web, but that didn't work.  Is there a difference between the OWC11.msi on the O2k3 Pro disk as oppossed to the OWC11.exe downloaded from the web?

Thanks,
MS

I clicked the apply button underneath the error message and the server and cube (below):

Analysis Server:
Cube Name:

and I get this under the Customize the PivotTable:

No Details
The query could not be processed:
