Why do I keep getting this "something happened to the powerapps version you were using"

Every time I go to edit my power app I keep getting this message: 


When I selected "Update to new version" I am able to open the app. But when I save, publish and leave and then open the app up again, I continue to get this error. 


Does anyone know why this keeps happening?

Hi @Mgodby,


Please share more about your scenario.

What is the PowerApps Studio Version when you edit?

What's the version when the app is published?



The studio version is v3.20052.20.151204573 and the app version just stays at 1 no matter what. I've saved and published multiple times but it just keeps staying at 1.

Hi @Mgodby,


Do you mean the PowerApps Release version stay 1? Could you share some screenshots as follows to clarify this?




Sorry I was mistaken. The version is changing, but it's still showing me that message every time. I notice that this isn't occurring for apps that I create in the environment, it occurs to apps that I've imported.

I am having this issue as well. After I imported my app, I clicked edit to check for errors. It brought up this popup and I clicked "update to an new version". There are no errors, so I save and publish. But then when I play the app, it's broken. If I open in edit again, there's errors all over the place suddenly! I imported two apps today and both had this popup, but only one of them suddenly became completely broken after saving and publishing the imported version.


I also started seeing this earlier this week.  This was not an imported app through.
