@marciossa ,


Have you used some new feature in your report when you create the pbix file? If you have, please go to File-> Options-> Preview features and enable all the features below:


In addtion, if this issue still occurs, please go to diagnostic options and Enable tracing and crash dump collection, then post the error code for further analysis.

I didn´t use none new feature. I Just created all the file on 2018-08 and then opened this file in the new version 2019-08 Power BI Desktop, I only clicked some objects and save. After that, when I tried open this file in 2018-08 Desktop version i can´t open. Is version that i use to upload Report Server in company.


By the way, I didn´t find this "Preview features" on 2018-08 version. Can you explain all way to open this one?


I didn´t find none information on log when I try open this file too. The log came empty:



Thank you
