Multiple QS Desktop users in a single machine

Is it possible for multiple users to log in (using their respective domain user) a single machine and use Qlik Sense Desktop?

I first installed it under my username and it is working fine. When my colleague logs in with his user, he isn't able to see Qlik Sense. Should he also run the installer under his profile?

If this is possible, I suppose that we would not see each other's apps since they are located in each "C:\Users\[username]\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Apps" folder, am I right?

Fernando,

When you installed something within you user profile, it is only going to be installed under your user profile not globally. For that, the other user must install it as well.  And no you won't be able to see your files unless you shared the location giving the other user rights to that path.

Fernando,

Since you can not change the file path for the Sense Desktop you won't be able to make a "shared" folder for everyone. You could in essence make a shared folder for users to drop QVFs into and others could copy them and place it in their directory.
