Status: Investigating

Hi @awais_mayo ,

 

Please make sure you have installed the latest version of Power BI Desktop,If you roll back to the previous version,  is the issue still existed here?

This error usually occurs when the program tries to reference an object that hasn’t been initialized. If it dosen't help, try to adjust your privacy level settings in Power BI Desktop options.
You may also check if you have the latest version of WebView2.

 

Best regards.
