Unable to Publish to Web

Good morning


I updated my PBI desktop version to November yesterday.  Aside from the issue already reported of report themes no longer saving when applied, I also have the issue that I cannot now publish anything from PBI Desktop to the web service.  This applies both to reports created in the October release version and reports created in the November version.  I have un-installed PBI and re-installed but no change.  Anyone else having this issue or anyone have a fix for this.


Many thanks

Good Morning


I have tried going to the Power BI Service and using ‘Get Data’ and that has worked perfectly.  What was happening was I had opened a report is PBI Desktop and then selected the ‘Publish’ option.  What happened then was I was asked to sign in which seemed to go ok.  I did not receive an error message but I did not then get any options to do with publishing (which I did previously).  If I clicked the publish button again nothing happened.  However, if I can publish by using the get data option in the Service that will be ok. 


Thanks for your help.
