QlikView seeing the wrong .NET on the server

In the QMC under System  About it shows under Machine Information that the .NET Version is 4.0.30319.42000

When we asked our network engineer to upgrade to at least 4.5.2 he comes back and tells us that our server is on 4.6.1.

Why is QlikView showing the wrong .NET version and how can we get it seeing the right one?

Because .NET is an additive package. .NET 3.5 for example doesn't replace any other .NET version (except another release of .NET 3.5), it just installs alongside other .NET packages.

.NET 4.5, 4.5.1, 4.5.2 and later all include all versions of .NET 4.0. Apparently QlikView only uses .NET 4.0.3, nothing from the more recent stuff.

You can check this out in the registry yourself by launching regedit and navigating to key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NETFramework. There you'll probably find two major versions, v2.0.xxx and v4.0.xxx. Expand the v4.0.xxx\SKUs tree and it'll show you which .NET versions are available on your platform.

Best,

Peter.

According to Qlik' s system requirements for QlikView V12.1 for the server:

the .NET framework should be 4.5.2 or higher

So do as the system requirements specify and everything will be ok. But the About tab will still display .NET 4.0.3 as the one used by QV. Until Qlik changes something in their software.
