Uninstalling Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows

Before uninstalling Qlik Sense, consider the following information:

  • Uninstalling Qlik Sense removes the Qlik License from the local PostgreSQL database, but it does not remove it from the server.

  • To completely remove all files from the server during the uninstallation, check Remove Qlik Sense demo apps, certificates and data folders.

  • If any updates have been applied to Qlik Sense since the initial installation, uninstalling Qlik Sense will also remove the updates.

  • In a multi-node site, the rim nodes are dependent on the central node. Uninstalling the central node will cause rim nodes to fail.

  • When using the Qlik_Sense_setup.exe file to uninstall Qlik Sense, it must be the same version that you used to install Qlik Sense.

Do the following:

  1. To uninstall Qlik Sense, open the Windows Control Panel and select Uninstall a program. Select Qlik Sense from the list of programs, then click Uninstall.

    A confirmation screen is displayed asking if you are sure that you want to uninstall Qlik Sense from your server.

  2. To remove all files from the current server, select Remove Qlik Sense demo apps, certificates and data folders.

    Information note

    If you plan to reinstall Qlik Sense on the same server, leave the check box unselected.

      Click Yes to start.

      When finished, the uninstall dialog confirms that Qlik Sense has been uninstalled successfully.

  4. Click Finish.

You have now uninstalled Qlik Sense.
