Why am I Getting This Error: Parameter name: maxWorkingSetInMB

Hello, 

 

Not sure why but out of the blue my powerBi gives me this error across all pbix files. 
Specified argument was out of the range of valid values. Parameter name: maxWorkingSetInMB

 

I have not changed a single setting and I started getting this error. 

 

To troubleshoot: I changed the max memory settings, tried a bunch of different values error still presisits. I reinstalled PowerBI, I also updated .net. Issue still exists. Cant get any work done.

 

Whats interesting is that even when I open a blank pbix file, and click on get data, after I select a data source<all types including CSV, I get something went wrong: error (super helpful error message)

 

Can somone please help me

 

Clearly the error is coming from PowerBI engine. 

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @PBIandME ,

 

What version are you currently using?

Have you recently made changes to your system directory or other files?
Please try deleting Power BI Desktop completely and try using the latest version or roll back to another historical version to see if the problem exists.

 

Refer to:

Previous monthly updates to Power BI Desktop and the Power BI service - Power BI | Microsoft Learn

Hello,

 

Yes I am using the latest version of powerBI and I tried unisntalling and reinstalling. 

The issue got resolved with PowerBI support memeber on the phone. 
Turns out the auto update function for some reason desided to install the 32-bit version instead of the 64-bit version of powerBI. 

 

We reinstalled the 64-bit version and now everything works. 

So for anyone having the same issues, I guess the 32-bit version doesnot work on a 64 bit version. 

@v-jianboli-msft If you can escalate this wierd issue to the developer team to further investigate. Because as I know a 32 bit program can run on a 64 bit system so not sure why this happened, and the auto update installing the 32 bit version even tho since always I have used the 64 bit version.

 

Thanks
