Can't display python visual

Dear Community,

I cannot seem to use python visuals (anymore), however it works for most of my colleagues in our organisation.

Any python visual (even the most simple example scatter plot with simple sample data, see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-python-visuals ) does not work, and I get this error instead:

PowerBI_PythonVisual_error.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have python 3.6.5 installed.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks!

I'm having the exact same problem, except I'm not sure if I could ever launch a visualisation. I'm just getting my head around Power BI for the first time now. I can't find anything on the exception Microsoft.PowerBI.ExploreServiceCommon.ContainPIIException, either. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have been getting the  same exception Microsoft.PowerBI.ExploreServiceCommon.ContainPIIException, with R visual. I'm trying to create a word cloud in R  and render it on the power bi desktop. Th R code runs fine on my machine   but the Power Bi R script does not seem to work at all.

 

Was also wondering if ,  the visual will render on the dashboard once i publish it for R , as that didn't work for Python.

Same here, this needs to get fixed asap as most of the custom visuals stopped working...

I am also getting the same error. 

 

using python version 3.7.4
