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.

Still, error on WebView2 in Power BI Interface

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.
