Updated Desktop to April release, crashing on all my pbix files

Does anyone know where I can find the installer for the March version of PowerBI, since I have updated to the April update (yesterday) using the app store on windows 10, all of my reports are crashing anc cannot open them?

 

This is the first time I have tried to use the app store version.

Hi @gator99,

 

Have you tried the update outside MS Store? My PBI was updated to April 2018 release this way.






Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!

The only method I see to update is via the app store, I saw the April email saying that all windows 10 machines would need to use the app store, so far I have uninstalled the app then reinstalled and all reports will NOT open and crashes.  I have also tried a system restore but that failed (my pc's issue though with the restore point) - kinda screwed at this point - would love to get my hands on the executable for March (64 bit)

Luckily a coworker kept the march executable (though it was in his recycle bin) and now I am back up and running, no updating for me for a while.

I was experiencing the exact same issues as well as  some other odd behavior.  However, what seemed to fix it for me was simply restarting the computer.  Now I can use the April update without error.

Just for future reference, this site keeps copies of Power BI installs for each major release, running back through 2016. I've used them before for emergency rollbacks.
