Turn off automatic update of power bi desktop software (for reports server)

Hello All,

PBIDesktopRS_x64 (October 2020) installed on a machine is being automatically updated to latest May 2021 version daily. Tried multiple uninstalls and re-installs to get it back to (October 2020). How do i disable Microsoft Power BI Desktop (for reports server) from being automatically updated on a machine.

There is no built-in auto update mechanism for Power BI Desktop for RS. The only version of Power BI Desktop that auto updates is the cloud version that you install from the Microsoft store. Any of the versions that you manually install from an .exe or .msi file do not auto update. If you are seeing this behaviour it is most likely because your IT department has some sort of automated deployment mechanism which is doing this so you will need to contact them to sort this out.
