QS Desktop: Connection Lost. Make sure that Qlik Sense is running properly.
Currently I'm strugling with a problem on QlikSense Desktop 11.24.1, on Windows 10.
The thing is, I can't use the Add Data Wizard to select and add tables to the document, because once I click on Add Data, QlikSense opens the window, but keeps loading forever whith the text "Initializing Add Data"...
I can select data trough the script editor, though, but the data connection takes a long time to show up.
And if I try to go on Data Manager, I get the error bellow:
"Connection Lost. Make sure that Qlik Sense is running properly..."
I've searched here and on google, and found solutions based on licences and proxy on QMC, witch I don't have due to be using the desktop version.
I've tried to uninstall and instal, bud it didn't work. I've tried to change the log path in services.conf file.
Ok. I found a cause of the issue, at least for me. The install program somehow installed in my user profile area on a network drive - perhaps through reading environment variables. It should have installed on my local C user profile area. That network drive is limited to 100mb. So the app ran for a day before running out of space, causing the error described above. Uninstall and re-install using custom so I could keep an eye on the paths it was selecting, solved my issue
