Hello..

Switching form SSAS 2008R2 to 2012, i would like to recompile ASSP with our update :-)...but

"Warning 29 The referenced component 'msmgdsrv' could not be found."

Please help as i reference msmgdsrv from V11 (2012).

of course this DLL is present in 64 and 32 bit in folder :

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Analysis Services\AS OLEDB\110
C:\Program Files x86)\Microsoft Analysis Services\AS OLEDB\110

what is wrong ?

If you haven't already seen, there's a separate ASSP2012.csproj file in the source control for our project. I would definitely start from there then include your changes. It's a VS2010 project, but you should be able to upgrade it to VS2012 if you like.

On my laptop, I do compile ASSP2012 using a msmgdsrv reference that points to:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Analysis Services\AS OLEDB\110\msmgdsrv.dll

Did you change your project to target .NET 4?

If you have Analysis Services installed on your laptop, you can also find this DLL under the bin directory (depending on your instance name and where you installed it):
C:\program files\microsoft sql server\MSAS11.MSSQLSERVER\OLAP\bin

Let us know if the above doesn't help and we'll research further.

I believe msmgdsrv.dll for Analysis Services 2012 is a .NET 4 DLL. So I think you're right. you need to upgrade to a newer version of Visual Studio.
