Following is the error I am getting when i am opening Power BI in Ubuntu.

Any idea what could be the issue?

Evidently, I used wine to install it on Ubuntu

  • What is PowerBI? Is this some proprietary product from someone? – Thomas Ward Jun 6 '18 at 3:04
  • Yes. Ubuntu's. :P I have edited the question and put the real error over there. – Gagan Jun 6 '18 at 4:01

    Um, PowerBI is a Microsoft product. If it doesn't run under Wine then that sounds like it probably won't work. There is no WineHQ test results either. And there is no Linux native variant. – Thomas Ward Jun 6 '18 at 4:32

What you fail to indicate is that PowerBI is a Microsoft proprietary product.

You may be able to install it via Wine, but Wine is not Windows. Nobody else has attempted to install PowerBI with Wine, and there are no test results

Not every Windows program can run under Wine.

I attempted to run various PowerBI components in Wine Stable and Devel latest on 16.04 without success (and those Wine versions are newer than what is in the repositories for any Ubuntu release). I have to conclude by that that PowerBI does not run properly on Wine.

PowerBI does not have any Linux builds either. Which means short of a virtual Windows environment on VirtualBox, you are unlikely to be able to run PowerBI on Ubuntu natively or via Wine.
