Hi Andreas, 

Do you have any more information about which patch we should uninstall/reinstall?

Though there may be additional ones installed if you are affected by this issue; we do not have a comprehensive list of which patches affect this issue.

All the best,

Hi,

We had success by downloading the Microsoft Access 2016 Runtime and Microsoft Access Database Engine 2016 and choosing repair installation. Requires stopping Qlik services and a restart after.

Cheers,
