pbiviz start error "Failed to generate visualPlugin.ts"

I am learning about powerbi. I am doing fine until I have to create the custom visuals. I did according to the instruction. However, when I run the command pbiviz start, I received the following error.

 

ErrorError

 

I just started learning powerbi a week ago and I have no idea how to solve it. And I tried to apply the solutions I have found online but all of them couldn't solve my issue. It's been three days that I am stuck here. Can someone help me?

Hi @Bluefrog,

From looking at your error message, it looks like it might be related to this issue with Webpack.

If you're running v17 of nodejs, it may be worth downgrading to the current LTS version (16) and trying again, or waiting for this issue to be resolved and a newer version of powerbi-visuals-tools with an updated webpack, once that issue has been resolved.

If you're on a recent version of nodejs (but not 17), then I would suggest creating an issue in the powerbi-visuals-tools repository for the team to investigate, as what you're experiencing is definitely not a common issue.

Regards,

Daniel

Hi @dm-p ,

 

Thank you very much for the solution. I had stucked with this issue. I uninstalled v17 of nodejs and reinstalled v16 according to your instruction. Now I got no issue when I run pbiviz start command. Thank you so much.
