Update to Power Query Preview breaks PostgreSQL connection RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    after upgrading from Power Query 1.5x to the current October preview, the connections to our PostgreSQL database don't work anymore. 

    The error message in the Power Query window is just: 

    Unexpected error: The evaluation terminated unexpectedly. Details:    at...

    The error we see on the server side is:

    could not receive data from client: Connection reset by peer
    unexpected EOF on client connection

    Is this a known issue? Is there a workaround? And if not: What's the best way to downgrade? A restore to the system point before installing the update doesn't work on Windows 8.1 - then e.g. the about button is broken and the Power Query Addin crashes.

  • This problem was also escalated to the Power Query support (via the built in frown function) and acknowledged as a problem that a fix is now being developed for:

    Thanks for the data, we have identified a problem and working on a fix for this. It should be available soon in an update of Power Query.
