Unable To Connect Oracle Essbase Database - Cannot Load Library Essapinu

Issue

After installing the required Essbase driver, opening view gives the error:

Cannot load library essapinu

Environment

  • Tableau Server 2020.2.4
  • Windows Server 2019
  • Essbase

Cause

MSVCR100.dll is included in the 'Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package' which is required for the driver. If it does not exist under C:\Windows\System32, Vizqlserver will try to search for it under C:\Program Files\Tabelau\Drivers\essbase\bin. By default, installing Essbase driver does not come with this .dll file.
