Failed to connect to QlikView Connector or Failed to unbundle QVConnect in QlikView Desktop
When creating OLE DB or ODBC connection, QlikView Desktop shows one of two possible errors:
Failed to connect to QlikView Connector
Failed to unbundle QVConnect
QvConnect32.EXE and QvConnect64.EXE (the processes handling 32 and 64-bit OLE DB/ ODBC connections in QlikView)are bundled into C:\ProgramFiles\QlikView\Qv.exe. On the first time the script editor is opened, these QvConnect files will be extracted into C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Temp\QVConnect\<QlikView version>\. This implementation ensures that QvConnect always match the current Qv.exe version.
If current user has no access to this path, QlikView cannot extract QvConnect files and shows error "Failed to unbundle QVConnect"
If there is a security protection (such as a group policy or antivirus) that block file execution from this path, QlikView is unable to run these exe files and shows error "Failed to connect to Qlikview Connector"
If a similar error message shows up, QlikView is unable to lauch QvConnect due to a group policy restriction or an anti virus scan. Request system or domain administrator to add an exception to this group policy so that QvConnect32.EXE and QvConnect64.EXE can be executed from this path.
