Power BI Desktop does not open when computer is offline

From the recent update versions, I don´t know precisely when, but now Power BI Desktop does not open when computer is offline.

This is really bad because some of my clients does not have guest network for me to use, and I cannot route my LTE cellphone because there is no reach to the cellphone antenna.

 

Unexpected error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Below is the print in pt-br.

Sounds like the same problem that someone mentioned in shouty all caps on the first page when you posted, which had been reported before that

Hi @DN,

 

This is a know issue. Please refer:

And as I know, it will be fixed in the next March release.

 

Thanks,
Xi Jin.
