Starting with February 2017 update when i open Power BI Desktop (with or without pbix file) always get this message:

 

An error ocurred while rendering the report.

 

Any idea?

Hi All,

 

A fix has been deployed to address this issue. Could you follow steps below from this thread to see if it works now?Smiley Happy

 

1) Close all instances of Power BI Desktop

2) Open file explorer and navigate to the folder <system drive>:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Power BI Desktop\CEF\cache

  • replace <system drive> with your operating system hard disk partition
  • replace <user> with your user profile name, typically the alias you login to Windows with

3) Delete all contents of this folder

4) Restart Power BI Desktop

 

Regards

Hi Team,

I also encountered the same problem and tried all possible means, but still could not resolve. Please suggest some ideas.

Because of the above problem, I am not able to see map visual

I experinced the same problem in a report that has a Table visual. To solve the problem I just turned on and off the background toggle in the table visual and the problem was solved solved.

Good Morning!


I also had this error when using the TEXT FILTER button of Marketplace, after changing the new feature (Updated ribbon) so this button stopped working where it started giving the title error!


Soon, I disabled the feature (Updated ribbon) and everything worked for me successfully !!! 🤔😊

where is Updated Ribbon feature?

I'm using Nov 2019 as well, and having the same issue with the Text Filter.

 

Unfortunately my updated ribbon was already disabled.

 

Have tried the clear cache option as well, using C:\Users\<username>\Microsoft\Power BI Desktop Store App\  to no avail.

I'm having the same issue with the 32-bit Desktop Client version, and it didn't work.

It's the second time that this has happened to me after the August update. 

 

First time I had to uninstall PBI desktop and I'll have to do the same now. 

 

Deleting the cache didn't solve the issue

I was able to clear the cache, but that didn't work.  When I tried to disable the map, i get an error when i open File/Options and Settings/Options - it says object reference not set to an instance of an object.

its 2023 year but solution not working tried a lot.

If your report has a Table visual, Try turning on and off the background toggle in the table visual. It worked for me.

Same, @v-ljerr-msft . Just got this error today for the first time. Desktop Version: 2.116.966.0 64-bit (April 2023).

Same! @sunilm & @MarkPalmberg 

For future users: this worked for me, except it was in folder <drive>:\Users\<user>\Microsoft\Power BI Desktop Store App\CEF\cache

Didn't work for me

Doesn't work for me either - there is no CEF folder
