Update December-21

Error when  starting PowerBi: 

 

Can´t load model:

Could not connect to data source or internal model DirectQuery.

The provider 'Microsoft.PowerBi.OleDb is not registered.

 

 

 

Status: Delivered

Similar issue has been submited internal before(ICM: 219178130):

“The provider Microsoft.PowerBI.OleDb is not registered” is a more generic error, users can try that:

  1. If PowerBI is being started from a desktop shortcut, try instead from the start menu (or directly double-clicking the EXE). If this successfully loads the query, then delete the existing shortcut and create a new one. It’s possible that the existing shortcut is opening PowerBI under the wrong permissions.

  1. Uninstall and reinstall Power BI and try again.
