Can't Schedule Refresh with Get Data from Web by example: unknown function name: Web.BrowserContents

I've created a fairly simple query starting from the new "Get Data from Web by example" feature. After Publishing to the web service, I can't set up Scheduled Refresh on the Dataset.  The error message is: 

 

Query contains unknown function name: Web.BrowserContents

 

Looking at my Advanced Editor, Power Query has generated a call to that function in the Source step, e.g.

 

Source = Web.BrowserContents("https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=58494"),
