Qlik Sense Desktop stuck with "Initializing Add data" after pressing the add data area....

Hi, 

I am having the above issue on a fresh installed Qlik Sense Desktop version.

  1. Installed the November 2019 Qlik Sense Desktop version on up to date windows 10 Dell laptop.
  2. Created an App and opened it
  3. Pushed the area to add data
  4. A circle appears with the following text below "Initializing Add data" 
  5. Noting mores happens

What to do? 

I tried to repair, run as admin but nothing works. 

Running the cloud version seems to work fine.
