Repairing an installation

The Repair option restores all missing files, shortcuts and registry values without any credentials being changed.

Note: If patches have been applied to Qlik Sense, the Repair option is disabled. You must uninstall all patches before you can use the Repair option, as it will restore the installation to the original installed version.

Do the following:

  1. To start repairing the installation, open the Control Panel and select Uninstall a program. Then select Qlik Sense from the list of programs and click Change.

    The Qlik Sense Setup maintenance screen is displayed.

    Note: You can also perform this action by double-clicking the Qlik_Sense_setup.exe file. In that case, you must use the correct version of the setup file when repairing your Qlik Sense installation, that is, the same version used when installing Qlik Sense.
  2. Click Repair.

    The Ready to repair screen is displayed.

  3. Click Repair.

    • If UAC is enabled, the User Account Control screen is displayed.

    • If UAC is disabled, the repair process starts.
  4. Click Yes to start repairing your Qlik Sense installation.

    Note: This is only applicable if UAC is enabled.

    The progress is displayed.

    When finished, click Repair Summary to confirm that Qlik Sense has been restored successfully. Click Back.

  5. Click Finish.

You have now successfully repaired your Qlik Sense installation.
