When data mining add-ins are installed, Excel process often keeps running after closing Excel. When user starts Excel after that, none of the Excel add-ins are loaded.

These were the steps.
I just tried to reproduce it again on a clean machine myself and everything works fine.
(In the past I was working on another computer that had older versions of Office and DM add-ins that I upgraded to Office 2013 and latest version of DM add-ins.)

I think you can resolve this bug.

Thanks for taking a look at it!

I tried repro'ing the bug but was unable to do it. Here are the steps I followed,

1. Start with clean new Windows 7 Ultimate X64 VHD.
2. Installed Office 2013 32 bit MSI.
3. Installed Data Mining Add-in for Office 2013 x86 from the public link.
4. Configured it to run against a MOLAP server running on another machine.
5. Tried the repro steps mentioned in the forum request. The repro steps aren't very complicated, I was successfully able to run DMAddin functionalities, load the same/different table into PowerPivot. Save and reopen the workbook just fine. Closed with/without save and the result was the same.

Please let me know if there was anything specific that I should have tried to repro the bug.
