I am using a PowerBi desktop version "2.54.4970.961 (PBIDesktop) (x64)". I could not open the pbix which I was using until yesterday. I am able to see the same report online and able to modify but when I download it as pbix and trying to open through desktop it's failing with below error.
Required property 'message' not found in JSON. Path '', line 1, position 192.

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=220.127.116.11, 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.
Hello, I'm suddenly getting this error. I've tried reinstallations, gateway removal everything recommended and still get during open the desktop.
Thanks for your help....
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.

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.
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.
