Can't install Power BI Desktop using the executable installer from September

Issue is not on all computers and we can't find what is the cause.

We run Windows 10 version 1809 with Office o365 version 1908, both in French.

We would need a solution to deploy correctly Power BI Desktop in both language, using our SCCM version 1902.

Hi @jlemay_cascades


Is there any error message occurs when you install Power BI desktop? 

Please check if the problematic machine meets the requirements listed here:

Hi @v-qiuyu-msft


There is no error message, the executable run for about half a second and then close (seen from task manager)


All our computers meets the requirements (Lenovo T550 and up, with Windows 10 1809)


The deployment procedure is created for the old MSI, we need to know if the next Power BI update will still be an EXE and if they will fix this issue.


Thank you,
