Qlik Sense Desktop Installation Error (1603)

1) I had a previous version of Qlik that I uninstall.

2) After 50% of the new Qlik Sense Desktop, I get the following error 1603 in the log:

Check for uninstall Qlik and find list of Qlik things in many directories. Delete all.

Clean ProgramData\Qlik, ProgramData\Package

Check MSV redistributable

Run Qlik install with Administrator power and without antivirus running.

I used the QSD from September and November. Same problem.

What should I do ?

Hi, try Custom Installation, do not change the Installation Location (click Next) but change the Storage Location to another directory such as C:\Qlik and confirm.

Re: Qlik Sense Desktop Installation Error (1603)

This issue got resolved in may case by combination of -a) changing custom location for storage and b) Installing as administrator .
