Report ran out of Memory

Good afternoon,

is anyone else currently getting an error message stating 


Unexpected Error

We're sorry. The report ran out of memory, and the application must close?


I get this while opening a desktop file, only seems to happen on one spcific file, others seem ok.

Cache has been cleared


Or has anyone any idea of how to open t report in safe mode. if that exists?

Hi @dunnes2002


1. Please start Power BI desktop application, then click on File -> open to open this specific report to see if the same issue occurs. 

2. Please run 64 bit version Power BI desktop if possible. You can also try the August version Power BI desktop:

thanks for the reply.

I have just noticed that IT packaged the software up as 64bit but the 32bit version has installed. I will get that corrected and try again
