Hi @cyclist007,

 

Based on system requirements for this product - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/power-bi-desktop/9ntxr16hnw1t?activetab=pivot:regionofsystemrequir... it is not recommended even if it is possible:

 

System requirements:

Minimum
Your device must meet all minimum requirements to open this product
OS	Windows 10 version 14393.0 or higher

Another version of this product can be installed on Windows Server 2012 for sure - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=45331 :

System Requirements

Hi @cyclist007,

 

By my tests, we cannot install Install Power BI Desktop - Store App on a Windows Server 2012.

 

We only could install the Power BI Desktop in Windows Server by downloading from the web.

It would be useful if the Store App could have been made available on Windows server as well - as it is more difficult to install a new version every month on a server!

Thanks ... just voted and will mark your response as a solution - as if they could allow for it to be installed on the server that would be the real solution (though I am sure there might be technical challenges)
