Solver add-in doesn't optimize

Occasional Visitor

Hello everybody,

I hope you can help me with this. I'm using the solver add-in for various optimizations, but since yesterday I can't get it to work on the most basic level.

 

Below is the problem setup. The squared difference is (obviously) minimized when current value and target are the same:

However, after "solving" the optimization, the current values remains unchanged. Solver claims that this is the optimal solution, which it obviously isn't.

Please also see below for the solver options:

Any idea what I could try differently?

Thanks very much in advance!
