I'm having the exact same problem.

I've had several issues with this also. I ended up removing my installation and reinstalling through the MS store. 

my publishing worked ok after then. 


hard to know whether the full uninstall and reinstall did it or the store installation did it. 


just thought I'd share


I have tried an uninstall and reinstall from the store and had no luck. We have different computers that are all getting the same issue.

This issue affects only certain users. The Power BI team is rolling out a fix. The estimate for the fix is early next week.

Just adding to the list

Running Windows 10 - all up to date, installed Nov update yesterday and can't publish today

Tried repair

No go

Same issue here!

We are now using the store to update the latest version of PBI. I understand that the solution to this issue is to roll back to the October issue. This is not as easy once you are using the store also we get an error message when I do try to install the older version. Hoping the MS fix this urgently.

Same - just done a test on another machine running the October build, published fine, but then after immediately updgrading that to November Publish does nothing.

I have the same issue. Certainly, a major issue as all the work that we have done cannot be used at the moment. MS please find a fix for this quickly.

Same issue here as well. I've tried signing out and back in. Removed PBI Desktop and installed the latest update Version: 2.52.4921.581 64-bit (November 2017) and stiill no luck. 

Any update on the timing for this fix?

Microsoft recommended the downgrade to Power BI Desktop October update and so far it works! Thay are still working on it and they did not gave me any date to solve it.

The new version of PBI Desktop that has been released over the last few days has not fixed this issue.



Use October version till monday 04 november 2017 it works fine.


Regards ,


Its November 30th and the issue is still not resovolved.

Also having the same issue. I click it, but nothing happens. No messages at all.

I have downgraded to a version from  August 2017 and found that the function works in that version.

The publish is not working for me.  How do you get the August version download?
