Hi @tek2hd,


Base on my research, the error is thrown when an assembly is corrupted, and there could be many and various reasons for this to happen: viruses, hardware failure, software bugs or a wrong action taken by the user.


We can't do much about that, if the problem persists I would suggest you to reinstall the newest version of Power BI Desktop or .NET Framework to see if it works.Smiley Happy
