Qlik Sense Desktop 2020 June - Working Directory

Good day All. 

I just installed Qlik Sense Desktop 2020 June. In me previous version I was able to define my working directory in the settings.ini by including "DocumentDirectory=F:\Sense\Apps". 

With QSD June I have tried the same in the settings.ini as well as in the QlikSenseBrowser.ini. Neither of these points me to my existing Apps. 

Please can anyone let me know where this is defined in QSD June. 

Thank you very much.

Hi,

Eventually did you find any solution  ?
I have the same problem, I would like to modify the working directory to save and retrieve my QVF files. 

I also migrated from the June 2019 version to June 2020 version, and the modification made in Settings.ini file as below seems to not work in this new version:

[Settings 7]
DocumentDirectory = C:\Users\...

Hi, 
Yes I did. 

In the settings.ini file, found in "C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Local\Programs\Qlik\Sense\Engine" I added some lines. I am not sure if you need anything else, but mine is as below: 


[Settings 7]
DocumentDirectory=F:\Sense\Apps
StoragePath=C:\Users\<USER>\Documents\Qlik\Sense
CustomDataPath=C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Local\Programs\Qlik\Sense\Connectors

I hope it works for you.

Thank you for this reply !

Eventually rom my side, I made a custom reinstallation of QS desktop to be able to choose my working directory. It also made the job 🙂
