Activating a QlikView Desktop license

To activate, or check, a QlikView Desktop license do the following:

  1. Find the QlikView executable file, typically located in C:\Program Files\QlikView\Qv.exe.
  2. Right click on the file while holding down SHIFT and CTRL, and select Run as Different User.
  3. Insert the credentials of the Windows user dedicated to the Qlik NPrinting service and check that QlikView Desktop is activated.

This is one of the most frequent causes of issues with the Qlik NPrinting service.
