When you install the Power Automate Desktop, the following message is shown after the login. This message does not allow us to create the flows.
Message – An Environment with a Microsoft Dataverse database is required to create a desktop flow. Create a database in the current environment or switch to an environment that has one.
Update – The March 2021 update of Power Automate Desktop (PAD) allows you to create the database right from the PAD. Get the latest version now. Below fix is for the older version of PAD.
When you open up the Admin Center, it asks you to create a new environment. Click on New.
Give a name of the environment and select Trial. Create Database will already be selected. Click Next.
Create a new URL and click on Save. This will create a new Environment for you.
If you seeing an error while creating a new environment, we have a fix here.
When the Environment gets created, come back to Power Automate Desktop and change to the newly created environment. This may take around 5 minutes to get reflected.
