Unable to install Power BI Report Server (March-2018 edition)

Hi 

 

recently I download Power BI Report Server of March-2018 edition. When I click the installation file, it showed only one option button --> "Upgrade Power BI Report Server" .

 

 

And when I click the button it raised error message :

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Setup blocked.

 

The following issues blocked setup.

 

Evaluation period has expired. Please upgrade to difference edition before attempting to upgrade again.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

the funny thing is I've not installed it before in the same box, although I did install the previous edition of Power BI Report Server in the difference server.

 

please advise how to solve this . thank you

 

 

Cheers, Octoni

If you check your add remove programs do you see an entry for Power BI Report Server at all? Also when you run the setup and get this error can you check the setup logs and see if there are any errors in there, they should be somewhere in this folder when you run the setup:

C:\Users\{userID}\AppData\Local\Temp
