Re: downgrade version

@MP_123 once you've updated power bi desktop you can't go back to the previous version.

Re: downgrade version

@ankitpatira Are you sure about this? I've seen many threads where people have reverted back by downloading the previous version. I can understand maybe if you create a report in the new version it may have some elements not compatible with the old one and break like OP said. I can test this out, but I'm in the middle of building an infographic that is taking a really long time and don't want to break it Smiley Happy

@ankitpatira Your downloads folder on your local machine, or wherever you placed the packages when you downloaded them initially.

Re: downgrade version

@Seth_C_Bauer thank you, yes if you've saved previous installs then you have ability to reinstall previous version. I was more referrign to the way you can roll back if you don't have previous installer saved.

@MP_123

 

The official download link only provides the latest version Power BI Desktop. So you can't downgrade unless you save the previous version installers.
