PowerBI Window 10 file for Microsoft PowerBI window 8 application

Hi all,

My name is Bryan and I hope you are doing well and taking care of yourself.

 

I am working for a client now and I have some questions.

 

I am working on a window 10 PowerBI desktop installed from the Microsoft Store. I expect to deliver this model to them and have been working closely with their IT support service to install the correct PowerBI desktop application.

 

The client is using window 8 and their PowerBI application version is different from the window 10 because the Microsoft store is different.

 

We tried using the web-downloaded PowerBI but there was an error opening to file and I found out that is no longer supported from the forum.

 

My question is will there be issues in opening the file that I work on their server?

 

Thank you

Bryan
