Re: February 2020 Desktop Update?

I have an issue with this update too:

Can't open any of the reports I've created in earlier versions of PBI Desktop (Dec 2019), error message says: "We weren't able to restore the saved database to the model". Reinstalling didn't help.

Re: February 2020 Desktop Update?

Link is now working correctly... I was able to download Feb 2020 64bit version at 6:00 AM EST. I have yet to open any files as I was going to install February gateway first.

 

I'll post here if I encounter any errors.

 

Good luck,

Danny

Re: February 2020 Desktop Update?

I have exactly the same issue after this update, I cannot open any reports, even after creating a new (blank) report and saving it, I'm unable to reopen it. I get the error: "We weren't able to restore the saved database to the model"

 

what i've tried so far: 

- repair

- reset

- reinstall

- uninstall and install from windows store instead of desktop version msi file

- uninstall, manually remove user Appdata folders related to powerbi + remove any keys related to powerbi from registry, reinstall

 

Nothing has worked so I'm eagerly waiting for any solutions!

If possible, can somebody share the december version installer?

I haven't found an official source so I uploaded my December installer to WeTransfer:

Re: February 2020 Desktop Update?

Hi Danny,

 

can you please tell me where did you download the Feb 2020 64bit version at 6:00 AM EST from ?

I checked download center, downloaded the PBIDesktopSetup_x64.exe 20 minutes ago, uninstalled power BI desktop, re-installed it, but still the same error: "We weren't able to restore the saved database to the model".

 

Thanks in advance for your reply.

 

Best regards,

 

Bart

I'm glad I'm not alone in this. I hate the fact that some of us have to download it this way and have to see all the excitement from others who have the downloaded it.

@BartVerhoeven, here's the link I used for msi installers (both 32 & 64 bit): https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=58494

 

Good luck!
