Excluding the Qlik ODBC Connector Package from Qlik Sense installation

Starting from version 1.1 the Qlik ODBC Connector Package is installed automatically with Qlik Sense. The Qlik ODBC Connector Package does not have a separate installation program for Qlik Sense.

The Qlik ODBC Connector Package can be excluded when Qlik Sense is installed in silent mode.

Do the following:

  1. Uninstall any existing versions of Qlik Sense and the ODBC Connector Package on the system where the new version of Qlik Sense is to be installed.

    Warning noteIf a version of the ODBC Connector Package prior to Version 1.1 is left on the system, it is not uninstalled by the Qlik Sense silent installation. The databases in the ODBC Connector Package will then appear on the list of available connectors in Add data and the Data load editor, but they will not work.
  2. Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt.

    The Command Prompt window is displayed.

  3. In the Command Prompt window, navigate to the folder containing the Qlik_Sense_setup.exe file.

  4. Run the Qlik_Sense_setup.exe with the appropriate arguments for silent installation.

    For example:

    Qlik_Sense_setup.exe -s userwithdomain="mydomain\myUser" password="myPassword" SKIPODBCCONNECTOR=1


    Qlik_Sense_setup.exe -s -l "c:\mylogpath" installdir="c:\mycustompath" dbpassword="mydbpassword" SKIPODBCCONNECTOR=1
