PerformancePoint Fails to Load Properly

If you’re getting an error on load of PerformancePoint about it being unable to load (basically you get a Windows error that your application failed to launch successfully – such as “PerformancePoint dashboard designer has stopped working”), the link below could resolve your issue (it worked for me).

Basically this will reset all your settings back to the out of the box settings for PerformancePoint, which means you’ll lose any customizations, data sources, etc. that you’ve setup, but at least you’ll be able to relaunch the application.

Sometimes one can be a little too aggressive when cleaning up your machine.  Oops!
