The REAL Qlik Sense Desktop update download link

Good day everyone!

I know that, when a Qlik Sense Desktop version is no longer supported, it proposes to download the latest version and then it provides a link which does not require any signing in, it's very easy: click, download & install the update

However, if a Qlik Sense Desktop version is functional (like 13.95.5, Sept 2020 Patch 2) it does not suggest this and there doesn't seem to be any 'check for latest downloads' button.

When searching for this, one of two links is usually provided: this one & this one. Both require logging in but I do not have any account connected to a license, my company owns that. Can someone please provide the link that QSD usually provides?

@Sweta_Sharma  , is there a Qlik Sense Desktop download section on the Qlik GitHub page as well like you mentioned here regarding QlikView?:

I've downgraded my desktop version just to spark the 'Upgrade Qlik Sense Desktop' notification because I remember tere was a qlik.com resource and it appears to be a quite simple link:

I also noticed that it's now forwarding to the GitHub releases. So to sum things up:

http://qlik.com/QlikSenseDesktopUpgrade is the official link and it currently leads to Releases · qlik-download/qlik-sense-desktop · GitHub for desktop downloads.

 

Have an amazing day everyone! 😄

Okay.. That's not a download link yet, though. I think.

  • Your first link states that I should follow the Support drop down to Product News and select Downloads but this isn't present:

    It also links to some issues tracker, not very useful.

  • The second link showed a link to the Qlik Download Site but unfortunately:

  • The third link shatters my hope quickly by starting off with "Free access to Qlik Sense Desktop ends today, July 14, 2020" (on the side: terrible timing to end something). I get we don't have free access, therefore the authentication process via QS Enterprise is in place.

    But downloads should still be available, no?

Perhaps you meant to say there is a download link to be found somewhere in those rabbit holes but this Alice can't seem to find it.
