Yes, this same behavior was happening on my workstation.


The following changes to the registry resolved the issue for me.


1) Regedit from the command line 

2) Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addins\MicrosoftPowerBI.Client.ExcelAddIn

3) Modify the LoadBehavior

4) Change 'Value Data' from 0 to 3


Hope that helps,

Thanks for the reply,  I'll try and get our IT guys to sort this.


Shame it's necessary

I was encountering this same issue with the Power BI Publisher for Excel plug-in.  I went into the registry to change the load behavior and it resolved it for me.


1) Regedit

2) Navigate to thHKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addins\MicrosoftPowerBI.Client.ExcelAddIn

3) Modify the LoadBehavior

4) Change 'Value Data' from 0 to 3


Hope that helps,
