Power BI Free users are not able to see dataset with Build permissions in Power BI Desktop

We have a premium capacity enterprise instance of Power BI.  It is my understanding that users with a Free license should be able to connect to datasets via Power BI Desktop if they have been granted Build permissions.  However, we see the following error when a Free user attempts to do that.  I made sure the user has the latest version of Power BI Desktop.  They can also see the dataset when logged into the Power BI Service and create a report from scratch on the Service.  The user is part of an Azure AD Security Group that has been granted a VIEWER role on the Workspace along with Build permission. 


Can anybody confirm if this behavior is expected?
