1. Try to open it again. This may be an intermittent error.

2. According to the error message you provided, the error may be caused by circular dependency. Please check. If circular dependency do exist, you can refer to this blog.

3. Do you change the table name in data source? If so, please change it back and try it again.

Can't open desktop as well.  I see flash screen with  an error message is behind it. I was able to open it twice after MAR2018 install.  However, I got a different error:

 

Could not load file or assembly 'CefSharp.Core, Version=64.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=############' or one of its dependencies.  The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)

 

Desktop was removed and reinstalled and the same thing happened again.  Desktop app was OK to use after install and and after one PC reboot.  At least one other user at office had the same issue. 

 

Please advise.

The fix was instead uninstall use “Repair” button.

I went to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features\. Found power bi app and pushed “Repair” button.

 

Hope it works for you.

Gopher - thanks you for the reply.   I couldn’t find the repair from the Control Panel\Program and Features (I’m on Windows 10)  but  I did do the repair option from the Installation MSI package.  Ran the repair which forced a reboot and still same error message.  I’m not sure where to turn from here.

@prakashvj,

Do you get this issue for all PBIX files a specific PBIX file? How about you un-install and re-install Power BI Desktop?

When I am downloading PBIX file from workspace it is not opening in PBI Desktop Application. But if one of my team member is following the same steps, for him it is working fine.

We are making sure that we both have same Version copy of PBI Desktop application.

 

Request you to kindly give your thoughts on the same.

I even tried a different browser, but still get the same issue.

Hi,

 

We are having this issue when we download the pbix file from online and try to open in the desktop. if we share the local pc pbix file between the desktop, are able to open the reports successfully. 

 

Thanks

Jyothi
