Hi all ,

We have noticed your problem, this problem is mostly related to the environment, usually anti-virus and code integrity conflict, or webview2 should be upgraded, you can refer to this document below.

If the problem still exists, you need to collect logs for further troubleshooting.Since community support engineers don't have that access, I would suggest opening a Support Ticket. And a dedicated Microsoft engineer will come to solve the problem for you.

It would be great if you continue to share in this issue to help others with similar problems after you know the root cause or solution.

Experienced this and received the error message but had been reading a pdf for some time and I'm not sure what precipitated the message in BI.

I'm getting this error intermittantly again. For a while i wasn't and thought it might have been fixed. i guess not...

Just ran into this issue.

Caused a full freeze and crash of the program. Losing all unsaved work.

This NEEDS to be fixed

I just started getting this issue - about 24 hours ago.  It happens when I am trying to paste DAX in from Notepad++ into a new calculated column.  I can type quite happily the same code.

Strange thing (from my prespective anyway) is that I could create a new table  by clicking "Enter Data" and paste the data for this table from Excel.
