Hi,

Please start Power BI desktop as administrator, then click on File -> Open to see if the same issue occurs. Also please ensure the pbix file is saved in local drive rather than network drive. 

You can also refer to this solution:

Hi,

According to my research, a similar issue has been reported internally, ICM: 268045992

In the latest updated information, the engineers haven’t found the root cause.

 

I will update here once I get any information.

@v-robertq-msft : Hi, i got the same error with the last version :

@ndufaut ok so how this issue was resolved for me was by uninstalling Power BI desktop from my system and clearing all cache, cookies and restarting my system. During the uninstalling process what I found was somehow there were two versions of Power BI installed in my windows system. Once through the app store and one through the Power BI website downloads page. I would recommend uninstalling all versions and download the september vr of Power BI. I am using the sep vr, this error has not come back. Hope it helps. You can find previous vrs here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/fundamentals/desktop-latest-update-archive?tabs=powerbi-de...

 

hope this helps! Good luck!
