Performance Point Error – Code Blocks are not allowed in this file

We have  implemented Performance point for our Sharepoint farm as requested by one of our departments.

They want to use it as a Business Intelligence tool, therefore wanted to explore its capabilities.

We have configured it as documented by Microsoft by creating

  • Secure Store Service
  • Starting Performance point services
  • Configuring Performance point service application

After that we have handed over the site collection to site admin.

He activated the performancepoint /Enterprise publishing features on the site & tried access the Dashboard designer.

Below is the error that was received:

We have cross verified all the settings related to performance point but what eventually resolved the issue is updating the

Web.config file on the server by including the Pageparserpath Virtualpath for the ppsample.aspx  with serverside script as true.

<PageParserPath VirtualPath=”/sites/DashboardDesigner/Pages/ppssample.aspx” CompilationMode=”Always” AllowServerSideScript=”true” />

I hope this will resolve the issue if you are facing the same when working with performance point.

Note: This solution has been tested on SharePoint version 2010.

Thanks for reading
