Disable sending user data

Hi. I am running Power BI Desktop 2.84.661.0. Is there a registry key or setting in a file to disable sending usage data? I am trying to package Power BI into an app-V-style package with Software2's AppsAnywhere.

 

I can successfully disable software updates by passing DISABLE_UPDATE_NOTIFICATION=1 on the command-line to the installer and that settings sticks for all users. However, for the usage data, passing ENABLECXP=0 on the command-line to the installer disables the setting only for the user performing the install. Any other user has the setting enabled.

Re: Disable sending user data

Hi @achinayoung ,

 

What do you mean by this sentence?


 

However, for the usage data, passing ENABLECXP=0 on the command-line to the installer disables the setting only for the user performing the install. Any other user has the setting enabled.

 


To my knowledge, if the users won't use the package you provided for installing, the setting should be enabled by default.

Maybe I understand something wrong?

 

 

Best Regards,

Icey

Re: Disable sending user data

I think my original description was indeed hard to understand so let me ask the question in a different way. When installing Power BI, is there a registry key or other setting in a file that would disable sending telemetry data without requiring the users to disable this option manually?

Re: Disable sending user data

My guess would be somewhere in

 

C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.MicrosoftPowerBIDesktop_2.84.703.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\bin

 

(replace with your installed desktop version)
