Hi @rahulshevde ,


Sorry, but we couldn’t provide any support outside this post. There are several existing ICM(292502976, 294087216) related to WebView2 crash, and product group is investigating on such issue. Will follow up them and sync here once there is update. In addition, please make sure you are using latest version of Power BI Desktop and try different versions of WebView2 at the same time. Thanks in advance!

Still, error on WebView2 in Power BI Interface

New Member

I'm experiencing the same issue on Power BI, encountering the 'problem with WebView 2 + out of memory' message. Has anyone found a solution to this?

I have 50 data sources in power bi and each time I launch the update it takes several hours and it never finishes loading so it works if I update source by source, I think there is a bug in updating.


Can you help !!

Hello I am experiencing the same problem, it happen often after my computer turn to sleep and my powerbi desktop is open.


I am working on win 10

Canceling a Windows restart will invariably crash all open Power BI instances. The very reason of canceling the restart was to save these files !!!

Chiming in as I have recently encountered this issue as well. It initially occured when I had one Power BI report open as I attempted to open a recovered file. Receieved an adjacent 'Out of Memory Exception' error in parallel with this issue. 


Consequently each time I reopen and try to restore another one of these files, it appears to become corruputed, and appears with a filename of 'Untitled' after each subsequent failed attempt to recover, reuslting in a Web View 2 crash. Once they are labeled 'Untitled' they become inaccessible and I am forced to abandon and disregard these files.


I'm on an Azure Virtual Machine using Power BI Desktop when this occurs.
