"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1) Verify: (1) is the SSAS service running, and (2) is the SQL Browser service running?

2) Re-install everything without an instance name, just the default instance

3) Also Refer:
