MSIX App Attach - Power BI Desktop

Copper Contributor

As I have understood it, MSIX was the package format that would replace the "old ways" of doing things and vendors including MS would begin distributing their applications in MSIX form.  Yet, I can't seem to find Power BI Desktop as an MSIX.  Am I just stupid and can't find what I'm looking for or is there a reason that the MSIX is not available as a download directly from MS?


I am beginning to get MSIX App Attach working in our WVD (now AVD) environment with a couple of simple MSIX packages I created, but I need this functionality for apps like PBIDesktop.  The app updates every five minutes and being able to use MSIX App Attach is appealing.

Hi, you can get the MSIX version of Power BI Desktop app through the store

@Dian Hartono Can the MSIX be downloaded from anywhere?

Here is the link to all supported OS and features
This only provides access to the .exe installer...
