After I installed "PowerBIReportServer.exe" ask me license key. My company use Power BI Software Assurance, so it shouldn't ask license key again cause I just update version. I try to put license key of SQL server Enterprise edition that include with Power BI Report Server, it isn't working. 

Do you have any idea about it ?


If you are just upgrading an existing install it should use the key of the previous install. I've done multiple upgrades over the past few years and I've never had to re-enter the license key. But, if it's asking for a key you need to provide one. If the one you have is not working you will need to go back to your Microsoft Account Rep and ask them.

Simply download the latest installer  (from http://aka.ms/pbireportserver  ) and run it on your server. It will detect your existing install and ask if you want to upgrade it.

Dear Mr. @d_gosbell ,

Thank for your reply
