Custom Visualisations Disappeared

Postby rwilson » Fri Sep 02, 2016 4:37 pm

Has anybody else had an issue with previously installed custom visuals disappearing in Power BI Desktop?

I have tried uninstalling / reinstalling both Power BI (August 2016 release) and custom visuals (latest versions) but can't seem to get them back. What's more, even though Power BI gives me a message confirming they have been successfully imported, they do not appear in the Visualisations pane and all the custom visuals in my reports are now blank.

I have done a search on-line but as yet have not found a solution - hoping someone in this forum has one.

Cheers

There is a known issue where an update in the base software can break plugins. Apparently Microsoft is trying to address this to make the plugins backward compatible. It is most likely this issue.

You may find that you need to obtain an update of the Custom visualisation after the October release.
