Using Power BI with Mac parallels

I downloaded power bi. I have a mac with parallels. When I try to upload an excel file it says this. 

 

Sheet1
Failed to save modifications to the server. Error returned: 'M Engine error: 'System; The directory name C:\Users\alexmartino\Microsoft\Power BI Desktop Store App\CertifiedExtensions is invalid.'. '.

Hi @amartino44 ,

Which version of power bi desktop you are using? Please make sure all your versions which you are using to open files are the same. If the version is before Sept. 2020, pelase try to disable 'Store datasets using enhanced metadata' format in Options and restart power bi desktop.

If the version is after Sept. 2020, the enhanced metadata format is bulit-in by default, try to run power bi desktop as administrator to check it again.
