Power BI Problem: "Can't finish signing you up"

This article applies to: Office 365 Productivity Bundle


When you attempt to download the Pro version of Power BI from Microsoft's site, after entering your Cornell email address, you see this error message:

We can't finish signing you up.
Your IT department has turned off signup for Microsoft Power BI. Contact them to complete signup.


This is working as intended. You can download the desktop version for free from Microsoft, but if you need the additional functionality of Power BI Pro, please see our Request Power BI Pro article. You cannot request this version on Microsoft's website.
