Environment Issues

This is all on the web. We're still running Windows 7.


I'm trying to determine the capabilities of PowerApps to see what it's suitable for.


My first problem is that I am unable to anything with the main environment, I can't create connectors or applications and nowhere does it say who the administrator is or how I can find out.


My second problem is that I was able to create a new Environment and add a connector to it, but when I go to add an application, always selects the default environment, which means I am unable to create an application.


Any help is appreciated.

Hi ralphtrickey,


About quesiton1, please check this documentation at here:

Please check the permission you have on the default environment.


About question2, please check this doc for more details:


You can switch environments by clicking the environment dropdown in the upper-right corner and selecting a different environment.


Please try with it on your side.


Best regards,
Mabel Mao

I've seen those. My environment must be borked. I'll see if I can find out who the admin is to get my permissions straightened out.


I can't create anything in the default environment, I can create a new environment but even once I've done so, I can't reach my newly created environment, apparently, the looks at the default environment instead of the environment I'm using in Since we're still using WIndows 7, until I get the permission straightened out, I'm unable to do anything.
