The error you are seeing now is differant than the original error that was reported. When you look in the config tool which account do you have set for the Service Account, is it a built-in account or are you specifying a specific account? Also do you have both SQL Server 2017 and PowerBI Report Server installed SxS? Thanks!
I recently installed a PBIRS Instance (CTP) and SQL 2017 on the same virtual machine in order to try out the new PBIRS and create/deploy some sample PBIX reports to this on-prem PBI server. I'm running into the same problem as rest of the people here. Everytime I create a PBIX report using the June 2017 version of PBI Desktop and try to deploy to on-prem PBIRS instance, I am presented with a very generic error message. When I dig in to the RS log files, this is what I see:-

Is there a patch for PBIRS I can download in order to fix this issue? I read through the responses from Msft team here in this thread and I concluded that they have a patch to fix this without me having to change some settings/service accounts on the server?
Hey Muqadderlqbal, the GA version of Power BI Report Server has a fix for this issue however you can fix it with the May preview versions of both SQL 2017 and PBIRS as well. If you read my previous post it has the steps to clean this up:
After following your steps, I was able to connect to PBIRS and successfully publish the PBIX reports to my local server. Now I am running in to another problem trying to connect to this on-prem PBI Report Server via the PBI Mobile app. It fails while connecting, throwing an error message that says the target server is not a SQL 2016 server. Are mobile apps for PBI not supported for on-prem hosting?
Also, can you link me to the GA version of PBI Report Server download page? I believe I downloaded my current instance from the PBI home page (the try PBIRS now option) and I still encountered the issue you said was fixed in GA version.
