I can't open my save documents

Hello, I am having some trouble with my Power BI desktop application. The problem is every time I close out Power BI on a file I can no longer access that file.  At first, I thought it was just some file connections or some files that made it go bad, but that's not the case even if I make a blank document with nothing in it and just save its name I can't access it. This seems crazy but it did update itself yesterday, but I doubt that caused a problem. Can someone please help me:

Things to note:

a. I have a Lenovo Thinkpad laptop with office pro-2019
b. Windows 10 Pro OS

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

I have the exact same problem, I think it is due to a PowerBI desktop update.

I cant open any report anymore, even the simple one's (Entered Data or Excel data only) get this crash.

 

I tried many things but none of them worked:

  • Reinstall PowerBI Desktop
  • Rename Reports
  • Redownload Reports from PowerBI Service
  • Kill all PowerBI processes
  • Restart PC
  • ...

I hope they will resolve this issue soon.

 

PS: Also tried saving a blank report, got the same error on opening it

Hi thank you for finding a solution to power bi desktop. You write that if we download December version, then the problem will disappear. How do I choose the December version, because it doesn't allow me when I download in Microsoft store.

Does it give you an error message or simply not load? If it's the latter, I had that issue a few days ago. What I did was open Task manager and force stop all Power BI applications that for one reason or another were running in the background. the next time I tried to load a file it took a LOT longer than usual but each time since has been immediate.
