Power BI Desktop won't launch

Hi,

Iv'e been using PowerBI with little issues for a few months, but now it refuses to launch. I get this error saying it wasn't able to connect to the model. I've tried repairing, reinstalling (from MS Store), and running as admin but it still persists. This a bit of a critical time for this to occur so speed would be appreciated.

Here are the details:

Feedback Type:
Frown (Error)

Error Message:
We weren't able to connect to the model.

@CarlosJimenez ,

 

I could not reproduce your issue on my side. Make sure power bi desktop has been updated to the latest version and check if this issue persists.
