Liveconnect .pbix files corrupted since August 2020 Desktop Update.

Hi!

Ever since I updated Power BI Desktop to the August 2020 release, everytime I save a .pbix file that uses Liveconnect (to a published Dataset) gets broken, and I can't reopen it. 

Before the update the files were working correctly. The corrupted files, when published to the service, seem to function correctly. 

 

The message I get when trying to open one of those files is:

"Unable to open document

 

'xxxx.pbix' is corrupt or an invalid file.  "

 

Thanks in advance for your help

The latest August update seems to do this. Check below.

Try using the July update of the Power Bi.

Hi @SGiova

New version of PBI Desktop (2.84.701.0) was published to Download Center and Microsoft Store. The fix will allow opening previously 'corrupted' PBIX files with no any additional steps needed.
