Hi @MP230691,

Could you check what the log says?. If the Log files indicate the following errors:

Error 0x80070643: Failed to install MSI package.
Error 0x80070643: Failed to configure per-user MSI package.
It could be due to a problem in the .Net framework. please check the next article. https://support.qlik.com/articles/000014827

This issue can be resolved by making sure the account is actually a Service Account.  Even Administrative accounts are NOT service accounts unless specified.

Depending on the Windows OS version you can do the following:

1. Open Administrative Tools (older versions, Control Panel, new versions, click on Start)

2. Select Local Security Policy, expand Local Policies, click on User Rights Assignment

3. Select Act as part of the operating system. If your user is already listed, skip to Step 5

4. Click on Add User or Group and add the desired user account.  Click on Check Names and make note of the entire name, example:  MYHOST\myservice

5. Return to the listing for User Rights Assignment and select Log on as a service, following the same directions as above

6. Close Administrative Tools and return to the Sense installation

6. Using the same exact name that appeared with Check Names, enter the service account name in the User dialog, with the correct password.


Second possible resolution might be: 

The issue with the installation may come from using the wrong computer/maschine name! 
Somehow it accepts the user and credentials but then fails, the easiest way is to use the exact name of machine name/user name taken from the properties of a file, security tab and then use the account full name from there.

Hope the above helps.
Stay safe
