Solver32.dll Not Found in SPECIFIC Workbook When using Solver Add In

Last Modified: 2015-07-14
Hi guys, everything I seem to find online seem to says that when you have this error it's the .dll's location or something similar....
Here's the thing I CAN use solver just fine if I open a blank workbook and attempt to create a simple solver.

But when I'm in a specific workbook it throws the SOLVER32.DLL not found error after it finds a solution and I click "Ok" to view the results of that solution. Any idea how or why a specific workbook would cause solver to throw that error?

I cannot share the workbook. It has data in PowerPivot, and the PowerQuery add-in installed. But this is also the case for a blank workbook....
