Paginated report builder .Net Version

Been trying to download the new Power BI Report Builder but running into issue of not having .Net Framework 4.5 installed.

But when trying to install that framework I am getting the message that I have a higher version already installed.

So went and checked the registry to find out I have .NET Framework 4.7.2 installed.

 

Is this is a bug on the report builder installation file that its not recognizing the higher version of .Net Framework?

Can you also check to see if you have this key in the registry:

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Full

 

Also when you try to install can you do it from the command line and use the following command:

 

msiexec /i PowerBiReportBuilder.msi /log C:\Temp\install.log

 

Looking in the log let me know if you see any errors and also if you see a property called RSNETFRAMEWORK45 can you let me know what the value is. Thanks!

As others have suggested command line was what helped for me as well...run the thing in quiet or passive mode:

 

msiexec /i <filepath>\PowerBiReportBuilder.msi /passive

 

or 

 

msiexec /i <filepath>\PowerBiReportBuilder.msi /quiet

Hi -- yes, the trick to get it to work is to run a command prompt, as administrator.

 

Then manually execute the msi from the command prompt with elevated priveleges -- then it will install without any error.

What is the first error? The failure does not look related to .Net version.

Ditto.  Did Microsoft really just put out a download that only works for computers from 2012?

We are unable to reproduce this issue. If you can provide system information and install failure log, that would be great. bradsy@removethistextMicrosoft.com

Can you also check to see if you have this key in the registry:

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Full

Installing using the msiexec command made it install successfully....that is good, but not sure why it wouldn't install normally.  

 

The log file has this property:

RSNETFRAMEWORK45 = 4.7.03056

Didnt work for me 

AppSearch: Property: RSNETFRAMEWORK45, Signature: RSNetFramework45

MSI (s) (50:C4) [12:47:26:543]: Ignoring disallowed property RSNETFRAMEWORK45

Property(C): RSNETFRAMEWORK45 = 4.7.03056

This is what I got.

Hi acbg,

 

This would be a bug if true. We will take a look at it and fix if we can reproduce.
