Error when launching Power BI Desktop

Hello Everyone,

 

I have an error when I launch Power BI Desktop on my computer (Asus - Windows 10).

This error is linked to "connections of named channels/networks" (I am trying to translate my error message which is in French).

 

Microsoft suggests I download the last version of Microsoft Power BI Enterprise Gateway - which I did even If I don't understand the link between this gateway and my issue. I also uninstalled / reinstalled Power BI Desktop. But it still doesn't work.

I am using a free Power BI school account and never used any gateways before !

 

Hint: I have just changed my computer. This might be the issue. I have read somewhere that I should run Power BI Desktop as "an admin" but I don't know how to do that.

 

Do you have any ideas ?

Thanks in advance 🙂

Hi everyone,

 

I have just found the solution !

As expected, it had nothing to do with gateways but admin rights.

 

I had to permanently run Power BI program as "an administrator" : 

 

Click right - > Properties - > advanced -> Tick "Always run as an admin"
