Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Power BI Desktop will no longer be supported on Windows 7 after January 31st, 2021. After that date, Power BI Desktop will be supported on Windows 8 or newer versions of Windows, for the most recent release of Power BI Desktop only.

Previous monthly updates to Power BI Desktop and the Power BI service
 
It is suggested that you go back to the old version.
 

 

 

Best Regards,
