Power BI Desktop July 2016 bug

I have applied the July 2016 update (PBIDesktop_x64 2.37.4464.361). Now I am no longer able to edit my DAX queries through Query Editor. When I double click on "Source" in the Query Editor, the Query Editor screen just hangs.

 

Is anyone facing the same issue?

I have tested the issue at my side, and it is OK for me to open the source settings.

Recommended troubleshootings are:

1. Enable the trace log and reproduce the steps (File ->Options and Settings -> Options -> Global-> Diagnostics), then open the trace log path, find the newly created trace log and see if any helpful information could be logged, or you may consider upload it into OneDrive and post the shared link in your next post, we will help to take a check;
2. Find the PowerBIDesktop install Media, double click it to perform a repair or a re-install.

I have saved the file on the path below:

 

hxxps://1drv.ms/u/s!AuBU-ITvrxqMh2n7iWUUTWvp-n8T

 

I am not even able to make a new connection to Analysis Services. The whole Power BI Desktop just becomes responseless and none of the buttons can be clicked once Analysis Services source is selected

I'm having a very similar problem.  I downloaded the new version yesterday morning and was able to work most of the day then all of a sudden in the middle of the afternoon, it froze on me.  Turns out it freezes when I go to Get Data or edit an existing query.

Which type of data source are your using? Import data or dorectly query? Please provide us the steps to reproduce this issue, so that we can make further analysis.

Re: Power BI Desktop July 2016 bug

I've ran into several problems after installing the July update.

 

Basic queries are taking forever to load.

 

The desktop app in general has become very slow and sometimes unresponsive, especially when working in the query editor.

 

The "Export to Excel" feature has some serious limitations, which was not there before.

 

After sending a frown, Microsoft indicated that they are publishing a new update ASAP that will fix all of the bugs. Hopefully this is soon.

Thanks for the quick response Charlie.  I cannot access SQL Server.  Power BI freezes after I perform these two actions:

 

1. Get Data (this happens even on a brand new Power BI file)

     i.  Click Get Data

    ii.  Click on SQL Server

    iii.  App freezes

 

2.  Edit Query (queries run against SQL Server)

    i.  Right click on an existing query and click Edit Query

   ii.  Click on the gear for the source under Query Properties

  iii.  App freezes

 

I've been able to do plenty of work with visuals and creating measures.  Just creating or editing queries appears to be the issue.

For anyone else who experiences this bug and is waiting for a fix, I was able to edit queries in the Advanced Editor screen so I could keep working.  Steps to get here are Query Editor -> View -> Advanced Editor.

I downloaded this version on my new laptop. It doesn't load any data, nor does it let me create a table and load it to the query.

 

Pretty disappointed as I need access to PBI urgently.

Re: Power BI Desktop July 2016 bug

I've been able to load data to Power BI with Excel using Power Query to retrieve data.  This should allow to continue making visuals and measures and when a fix is implemented, just need to modify the source and I think things SHOULD be just flow.
