Error while trying to sign in to Power BI Desktop


I'm getting the next error message when I try to sign-in with my work email at Power BI Desktop. 


Unable to sign in


Sorry, we encountered an error while trying to sign you in. Details: Unknown Status: Unexpected Error: 0xffffffffff80070005

Context: Unexpected winrt exception while launching accounts control from UI thread: '(pii)'

Tag: 0x1f7d7349 (error code -2147024891) (internal error code 528315209)


I tried to reset my pc, deleting the cache, use my default browser as the authentication browser and updating Power BI. I am currently on June 2023 (2.118.828.0) version.

Hi @vicmichel ,


You can refer it to troubleshoot power bi desktop login issues.


If this does not help, please uninstall the current version of desktop and reinstall the April version of desktop to see if the problem persists.
