Hi Clark -Easy to see the confusion caused by the similarities in naming.
The big difference is in maintainability. - the windows store desktop app is automatically updated on your desktop as new versions are released, but the manually downloaded .msi package version from powerbi.com will prompt you at some point to go to the web and download/install the newest .msi.There's a nice documentation page here that further describes the advantage of installing from the store vs the web. Get Power BI Desktop - Power BI
There are a few advantages to getting Power BI Desktop from the Windows Store:+
In windows/area and language, my language in windows is Local and English (United States) as languages pack.
I have Power Bi Desktop from Powerbi.com on my computer for long time in English. Now I have from W Store downloaded Power BI Desktop. PBI Desktop is now in my local language.
As you write W Store check languages on my computer.
Is there a way where I can have both. Windows in local and PBI Dektop English from W Store ?
If negative above, then the only option is PBI Desktop from PowerBI.com ?
If we today can download PBI Desktop from W Store, don't you think download from PowerBi.Com will stop in the near further ?
To day I have all my office in English. So my Excel is in English./Amdi
