How do I update PBI Desktop?

Postby Eriha591 » Wed Oct 28, 2020 7:59 pm

This sounds like a stupid question but I actually have problems with this.

When clicking on the update link in the bottom right corner in Power BI desktop I get directed to this page: ... e-summary/

But when clicking on Download Power BI Desktop "my computer tells me" that I already have the product installed.

So again, how do I update the program? Do I need to uninstall PBI Desktop and download it again?

Best regards

First check what version of Power BI Desktop you have.
Click on Help and then on About.
The latest version as of today is October 2020 version.
If you install Power BI Desktop from Microsoft Store, then it gets updated automatically

For my company, every update is pushed out manually by the IT department. So if I want the latest version, I have to go grab it myself or wait for them to do so.
