Introducing Power BI Embedded talk at Cloud Summit

Hi All,

Earlier today, I have presented "Introducing Power BI Embedded" top that covers platform capabilities and tools in Cloud Summit event at Microsoft Chevy Chase office.

The session covered Power BI Platform capabilities, tools and Power BI Embedded as PaaS option in Microsoft Cloud platform.

I have got a lot of questions about Power BI data set scheduling, working with data capabilities including direct queries vs. import options while authoring reports in Power BI desktop. I also covered the need for Power BI Gateway for hybrid scenarios.

Fixing powerbi.d.ts missing modules errors in Visual Studio 2015


While i was working on Visual Studio 2015; I have got this errors due to missing modules in powerbi.d.ts file. I have an ASP.NET MVC project that uses Power BI Embedded and i would like to get this application up and running but i am getting these errors while building my app.

These errors are due to missing TypeScript tools for Visual Studio 2015. Once you install them, you will be able to run your app and all these errors disappear.

To fix this problem, follow these steps:

  • Open Tools | Extensions and Updates.
  • Select Online in the tree on the left.
  • Search for TypeScript using the search box in the upper right.
  • Select the most current available TypeScript version.
  • Download and install the package.
  • Build your project!

Hope this helps.
