Install PowerPivot (version 10.50.2500) after applying SQL 2008 R2 SP1

After installing SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 on my PC, the PowerPivot for Excel 2010 no longer works. It crashes while opening the file and unable to import data.

Reinstall old version of PowerPivot does not solve the Problem. You need to go to Microsoft website to download the latest version of the PowerPivot (version 10.50.2500.0) and install it.

I’m surprised that Microsoft doesn’t add any note about this in SP1 release note.
