Re: Power BI Desktop July 2016 bug

I have found a setup where this issue is showing up, so I have enough to go investigate this issue with.

 

I'll update this thread once the problem is located and a fix is found

Re: Power BI Desktop July 2016 bug

Hi all,

 

We have located the problem - we are hitting a bug in IE 10 that causes the dialog to freeze. This shouldn't affect IE9/11 machines.

 

We'll rollout a QFE when the fix is ready. Hopefully very soon. I'll update this thread once the QFE is out.

Re: Power BI Desktop July 2016 bug

Since a few days i have exactly the same problems in power bi desktop . E.g. When I open the desktop and click on "Get data" and choose "Analysis Services" the desktop freezes and i have to cancel the session by task manager.

 

The same problem exist e.g. when i am at power bi desktop using the query editor and want to change one step at the query settings. The desktop just freezes.

Re: Power BI Desktop July 2016 bug

Has anyone found a solution for this?

 

 

I hit the Enter Data button and it freezes.

 

I'm trying to edit a direct query source and it freezes.

 

I tried repairing, reinstalling, updating .net framework, and nothing works.

 

I had to roll back to the previous version so I don't have this errors, but now I cannot open the files I've edited with the new version.

 

Pretty annoying!!

Re: Power BI Desktop July 2016 bug

@ling0028, there is no known workaround for this issue other than upgrading to IE11. The QFE is on its way.
