Hi @v-qiuyu-msft ,

When ever I open an existing file, receiving the error message: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. I have tried updating the windows, uninstalled and installed the Power BI Desktop. But still the issue persists.  But where as my friends are able to access the same file.  I have downloaded the same file which they are able to access from the service and tried accessing it. But still unable to access the files from yesterday.  I have even reported the issue also.

Hi @v-qiuyu-msft ,

 

I'm also facing the same issue.

Unable to access the reports in desktop. 

Please do the needful.

Hi all, 

 

Please start Power BI desktop as administrator, then click on File -> Open to see if the same issue occurs. Also please ensure the pbix file is saved in local drive rather than network drive.

Hi @v-qiuyu-msft ,

 

Tried opening Power BI desktop as administrator,  then File -> Open, selected the file which was copied earlier to desktop. Still the issue persists.

Hi all, 

 

Please check if the anti-virus software block the related Power BI desktop processes. If not, I would suggest you create a support ticket to let engineers look into the issue on your side.

Getting the same error : 

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

I'd like to share my researches. There are installed MS office 2019 and the latest version of PBI: 2.88.1385.0 64-bit (Dec 2020). I've  set 2 different type connections to the same Oracle (12C) databse: ODAC and ODBC. Both of them work fine from Excel. However, trying to use an ODAC connection from PBI got  a msg: "Object reference not set to an instance of an object". Then i have created an ODBC conection. Successful. Then i've created the ODAC as a second connection to the same DB. Successful as well. Finally I've deleted the ODBC connection, refreshed and seen "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" again. Any ideas?
