power bi desktop won't open

Suddenly today power bi desktop won't open.

I've tried deleting and reinstalling several times, but it doesn't work.
I downloaded it from the power bi homepage, not from the Windows App Store.

How can i do that?

@HJK , Make sure no windows updates are pending. Clear tmp folder tries again. Try a version little bit old

I had same issue, and needed to uninstall WebView2 using the command prompt (and then reinstall it from the store). See this link - windows - How to uninstall Microsoft Edge WebView2 - Super User
