Unable to open any PBIX - "Argument not valid"

Good Morning,

I am a very new PowerBI user and I have a very strict company computer admin policy that ties my hands in a lot of troubleshooting/upgrading. Version: 2.130.754.0 64-bit (June 2024)

 

I can not open any .PBIX files, and the files I created last week are not showing in the folder, but I did publish them to the cloud successfully (and I chose "save" before I published).  I get a "Something went wrong: Argument not valid" error.  The complete message is posted below.

 

I tried some troublshooting steps from previous posts, and nothing worked.  I do not have a Microsoft/Power BI Desktop folder to look for my TempSaves.

 

I have some deadlines and I need to build on these files. Any help would be greatly appreciated; as I don't have time to recreate the wheel!!!

 

Thank you,

Ruth

Have you considered opening the appropriate type of request with the organization's Fabric Administrator to help resolve this issue?
