Re: Couldn't load the data for this visual

HTTP 401 is a "unauthorized" error code. 

What is the visual?  Is this a direct query?  Does it work anywhere?  If so, are there any differences between those scenerios in networking terms.


For example, if it works on your desktop application but not from the service, the difference will be that the service runs under the microsoft cloud, but the desktop is on your computer inside your network.
