Hi, @kartikeyabehl 

 

Power BI Desktop is engineered as a multiprocess architecture, and several of these processes communicate using Windows named pipes. There may be other processes that interfere with those named pipes. The most common reason for such interference is security, including situations where antivirus software or firewalls may block the pipes or redirect traffic to a specific port. Opening Power BI Desktop with administrator privilege may resolve that issue. If you can't open with administrator privilege, ask your administrator to determine which security rules are preventing named pipes from properly communicating. Then, add Power BI Desktop and its respective subprocesses to allowlists.

 

If you have more questions about not being able to open the desktop, you can refer to the link below. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/connect-data/desktop-error-launching-desktop
