Same problem here. Neither Import Excel Data into Power BI nor Upload your Excel file to Power BI are working. 

 

Also simply tried open with Excel but the error message said the file is corrupt and can't be opened. I think power BI provider need to update with a new data. 

 

Any solutions to this one?

I think this got something to do with the file itself. 

I'm using corporate laptop where I don't have admin access. Therefore, can't update the Silverlight or any other software.

Any solutions to this?

Power view reports require a Silverlight supporting browser to open in excel online. Please open this in a different browser.  

You can use Power BI to import power view sheets from your workbooks & create a Power BI report you can share online.

 

I have same the issue.

I've installed Silverlight & tried in chrome, internet explorer & firefox but no use.
Can anyone please assist to solve this issue and explain what do you mean by "

Thanks in advance.
