How to create a connection to data source?

I have just installed qliksensedesktop:11.11.1 and I'm trying to create a connection to a database using Data Load Editor > Create new connection. Surprisingly this is giving an empty menu. It seems like a bug. Do we have a fix or work around for this? Please help.

Re: How to create a connection to data source?

Hi,

I've seen such a couple of times immediately after starting Qlik Sense and opening a new application. I saved the new application(still empty), closed it and restarted it, after which everything was fine. It seems that something may not have time to work when starting a new application immediately after opening Qlik Sense.

In my case software doesn't hang, but I'm not able to see "Create new connection" menu. Is there any any other work around/six for this? I have tried reinstalling, clearing cache, creating new apps as well as using existing apps, but I'm getting empty menu every time. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
