it feels like a silly question but how does power bi desktop actually update?
I can see that I have the opportunity to click through to update the latest version of powerbi from the bottom right corner of my desktop. Once clicked through I end up on this blog post - https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-october-2018-feature-summary/
From clicking the download button I am then directed to this generic new user download page -
And then after clicking on the final yellow button I am directed to this page -
but I am given a white web page and nothing happens.
I am using a work computer where my access to certain software is limited.
Could someone please tell me exactly what should happen at this point after clicking the download button so that I can tell my IT department which programs I need to be able to access?
Go to Solution.
try this onehttps://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=45331
You need to have admin right to install/update power bi desktop on your machine.
if you are restrict access then you might need to contact your IT service helpdesk to add latest version of Power bi to your Application catelog and you can install it from there.
- Close Power BI desktop ,
- Download Power bi desktop from the link : https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/desktop/
- once it gets downloaded , Click run.
Hope this helps.
Could you please mark the proper answers as solutions?
If you have a Microsoft OS you can download PowerBI from Microsoft App Store. This app will be automatically updated every month.
Hi @markoss92 ,
But i don't know when it get updated? Can you pls tell me when it gets updated.
Hi @Arul It depends of the month, but the update is totally transparent for you if you download PowerBI App from Microsoft APP Store. Aprox the 10th of each month powerBI updates itself.
If you want to know if you have the last update of your PowerBI, you can go to File->Help->About to see which is you PowerBI Version (May 19, June 19...)
