Re: Error opening file: Cannot read property 'connectionInstanceId' of null

Hey any update on this? I can not open any apps in my browser both in dynamics 365, and in powerapps online. I can open these apps in my powerapps IDE. (the desktop application)

So far we are unable to repro the issue. Do you mind sending your msapp file to me, so we can attempt an in-house repro?

Could you please send us the URL which fails to open the app? Url you see in the address bar of the browser where you see this error message. Looks like that url might not be correctly generated.

You know it only happens in chrome, it works for me in IE and edge. Perhaps my cached powerapps file is corrupt?!

Could you try Chrome in incognito mode?

Re: Error opening file: Cannot read property 'connectionInstanceId' of null

@Brione possible explanation for the issue in Chrome is if you have the setting "Block third-party cookies" enabled. Here's how to check.

 

Go to Chrome's settings --> Advanced --> Content settings --> Cookies

 

Make sure that "Block third-party cookies" is not selected.

I think this is related to an update in a control. The app crashes when it gets to a certain screen.
