Installing Qlik GeoAnalytics for QlikView Desktop

This is a guide to installing QlikGeoAnalytics on a QlikView Desktop.

Note that you will need a Qlik LEF license to install version 5.8 or later.


  1. Start by unzipping GeoAnalyticsForQlikViewDesktop<version>.zip into any folder on the server computer.

    Navigate to the folder where you unzipped the GeoAnalyticsForQlikViewDesktop<version>.zip file.

  2. Double-click the .qar files to install the extensions.
  3. Run the GeoAnalyticsSetup file to set up GeoAnalytics. This will require you to activate your serial number and license.


To update your existing GeoAnalytics for QlikView Desktop installation, repeat the installation process with the updated extension files.

Troubleshooting Installation

If you install the GeoAnalytics extensions as instructed, but QlikView Desktop displays an "Invalid Visualization" error, it is likely a QlikView cache error.

To resolve this issue, you need to clear the browser cache that QlikView uses for WebView mode, which is either Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge by default. If you have the same problem with other QlikView Desktop apps, repeat the process with that app.

Internet Explorer

  1. Open the browser settings.
  2. Switch to the Safety options and click the Delete Browsing History button.
  3. Uncheck everything except Preserve Favorites website data and Temporary Internet files.
  4. Select Delete.
  5. Hit F5 to refresh.

Microsoft Edge

  1. Open the browser settings.
  2. Under Clear browsing data, select Choose what to clear.
  3. Uncheck everything except Cached data and files.
  4. Select Clear.
  5. Hit F5 to refresh.
