Find out a version of a PBI file

Hi everybody, Is there a way to find out a version of a PBI desktop file without opening it? I was sent a PBI file over an email from a colleague that is no longer working for the company, and no matter which PBI version I install, I cannot open the file - I get the message that the PBI report is created with a newer version. Thanks for any suggestions Kristian

Re: Find out a version of a PBI file

Hi @kristian142

Do you see something like this when you try to open the pbix?



I use desktop with version 2018/11 to open a pbix created with version 2018/12.

i meet this error window, then i click on the "close" button, after waiting for a while, finally this pbix can open.


i recommend you download the lastest version.


Best Regards
