Dial Gauges are completely gone on all reports and in service

I opened my dashboards today in the service, and all dial gauges were completely gone.


I went into the desktop files, and they would not render there either. There is a ghost "placeholder" where the gauges once were. I updated the visual with the latest DialGauge update v. 1.01, and the visual would not appear in my 'Visualizations' pane. When I update the visual, I get a message that it was successfully updated. 


Has anyone seen this issue? Is it my PBI desktop files, or is something up with the service?


Any help or advice would be appreciated. 


Hello Folks,


Just got confirmation from the Microsoft BI team for fixing this issue.

No need to download latest version or any other changes in your current PBIX,you need to just refresh the browser and it all works fine as before.


Thanks again for all your patience and cooperation.

If that is a custom visual, you'll probably have to contact the author. Obviously something that the latest round of updates did broke it. I know that my out-of-the-box gauges are working fine.
