What's your data source in this .pbix file? Have you updated your Power BI Desktop into latest version?

 

If it's Excel file with Power View sheet, please delete the Power View Sheet and import again. See: Input string was not in the correct format

 

If it still does't solve the problem, I suggest you create a support ticket.

 

Regards,

Try to uninstall or stop the Enterprise Gateway Windows Service and run Power BI Desktop as administrator to see if it can lanuch.
