We are starting to use Alteryx in the company yesterday, but we are having a problem when trying to connect to files using the Input Data tool. Does not matter what type or size of file I use, when trying to use the Browse or Select tool, or any other tool, I receive the following message:
Designer x64: The Designer x64 reported: AlteryxProcessManager::Start: ConnectNamedPipe: Error in ConnectNamedPipe. The pipe is being closed.
We are two in our team and we both have the same issue.
We installed Alteryx 11.3 x64 and we both have 32 bit Office, 64 bit Windows.
I tried using the 32 bit connection to connect to excel or access but it is not working.
I am following the same steps as the videos to connect to a file, using the same files also, but no luck.
I didn't do it, the IT Team for the company did it. In the final email they said that they whitelisted the executable file needed and then reboot Alteryx, so I guess it should be something like alteryx.exe.
