Hi, @Lennonsunday 

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling another version of Power BI?

Make sure that Windows Defender firewall is not blocking PowerBI communication.

I have uninstalled and downloaded the newer version yet I couldn't run the power BI and for the firewall please guide me on how to check if my windows defender is not blocking power Bi communication. Thank you, anticipating your response
