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

Hi @SGiova 

according comments here https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-august-2020-feature-summary/

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.
