PowerBI 32-bit Desktop Crashes

Hi Community

Because of the database I am forced to use 32-bit PowerBI-version and in the beginning no crashes occured. But now the desktop constantly chrashes without giving me any error descriptions? I have tried to uninstall and install the program again, but it did not fix the problem..

Anyone know why this problem appear??
