PBI desktop and Python integration problem

Hi all


I have a PBI desktop file which was developed based in several python scripts: some for visuals and others for data transformation.

This file was developed in machine 1 and now i'm trying to use that same file in machine 2.

Both machines have latest PBI desktop version and both machines have Python installed. In machine 2 i folowed Microsoft instructions for Pythn installation here.

However, when I open PBI desktop file in machine 2 i get the following error:

I am pretty sure that Python is installed in machine 2, please check image below for a validation:

python install check.PNG


So, now what should I do in order to work with this PBI file in machine 2?

@SergioTorrinha , pbi file has python path setting, can you check is that correct on another machine.

Check the python path in the second machine is it same as the first machine

Ho yes the path is correct in PBI desktop file in machine 2.
Sorry i forgot to mention that in my original post

Hi, @SergioTorrinha 

Have you tried to   developed  a file in machine 2 and then use that same file in machine 1  to check if the same problem occurs?

@v-easonf-msftdeveloping python in machine 2 is no option here, as the owner of machine 2 doesen't know how to work with python. So the idea here is to develop in machine 1 and then deploy in machine 2 (yes i know machine 2 needs to have Python installed acording to microsoft recomendations).


In any case, I think Comodo firewall in machine 1 was blocking a Python service from running properly. I wasn't able to test if this solves the issue or not but i found a couple posts in Comodo forum that lead to think that Python was getting blocked by it.


Thanks 🙂
