Power BI desktop calls the sqldmper.exe then crashes.

Lately while I was maintaining the published reports from the Power BI desktop; noticed that after save, when I clicked on the Publish button, it calls the sqldmper.exe (the command window) and crashes; sometimes hanged and had to kill the task.

Then I noticed PBD keeps logging me out during publish, calls that sqldmper.exe and after crash, have to relogin and publish till now.

I believe there's a bug in latest update; I am running the january 2018 update.


Is anyone else facing the same issue?




Status: Accepted

Hi @k3rz0rg,


This is an known issue. The ID is CRI 58661945. The workaround could be signing in first before clicking the publish button.


Best Regards,

I have the same issue too.

 Hi @v-jiascu-msft,


that's what I've been doing for now; luckily I am being able to save the report after changes and it only crashes during the publish... 

It'd be a disaster if I was unable to save.

Hope MS will take care of it...

Seems like the issue has been resolved (for now) with the latest May 2018 update. 

Hope it will stay in this way for quite a while...
