Apologies if this has come up as a repost - the forum tells me my previous posts have posted but I can't see them anywhere.

Re: Error installing Power BI Server - URLACL

Ok, so I solved this in the end.

Power BI will NOT install if you have anything (such as existing Reporting services instances) on port 80 or 8083

Use NETSH to identify any clashes.

It doesn't mind the temporary listeners reservation on 80.

 

We have several instances and 8083 had a conflict that the installer wasn't able to resolve, once moved to other ports, the install sailed through.
