Anyone having same problem? i downloaded the latest version, installed and restarted pc. now the PowerBI desktop would not launch 😞
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have the same issue. I used Power BI Desktop for 5 months without a problem. After downloading the latest version of the program I cannot launch it anymore. Tried to launch with Administrative rights, switched off all antivirus and protection programs, repaired, deleted, reinstalled, no change. I am not getting any error message, just the icon of PBI after a second dissapears from the system tray. Seems many users have the same problem. Any reasonable suggestions?
It appears there may be a problem with the current 2.38.4491.642 version, namely PBIDesktop_x64.msi. I uninstalled this version and installed PBIDesktop.msi, and Power BI now launches.
I found I had issues after the updated. It seems the automatic update (from the in-program 'click here to download') only seems to download the 32-bit, even if you are running 64-bit. I had to go back through the website to download the 64-bit only for it to work.
I had another colleague experience the same issues, which were resolved by manually downloading the 64-bit from the website.
Hope that helps.
