Power BI Desktop crashes when trying to publish without signing in first

There was a similar issue last year. It seems that has re-occured.

 

https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Issues/Bug-Trying-to-Publish-in-the-service-without-saving-the-file...

 

When I attempt to publish a report and have not signed  into the Desktop yet, a command prompt box appears then disappears and Power BI crashes. Also, it seems that   after the January 2018 update, Power BI requires to re-signin for each report created prior to installing the  update.  Normally after I have  already signed in, Power BI will not request for  another  signin the next time  I open the same report.

I am experiencing the same issue.

It started since the january 2018 update.

Thanks for solving this!

I'm also experiencing this issue.  I try to publish, and then the SQLdumper.exe appears and PBI crashes.

I am having a similar issue but I am signed into the Desktop.  I click on publish and it signs me out and kicks me out of Power BI Desktop.  I have gotten in the habit of saving often now since I have lost some work at one point.  Please fix.  Other users at my company are experiencing the same issue.

Hi all,

 

Is the issue gone now? There is a May desktop version, you can update to this version then test it.

I'm experiencing this same issue with the sqldumper.exe flashing as pbi desktop crashes every time I modify the m code in the advanced editor.
