Qlik Sense Desktop does not open.


I was trying to run Qlik Sense Desktop after longer time of not using it, and it is not starting... Reinstalling did not helped also.

When I run it from the start menu nothing shows up. Looking in the Task Manager I can see some Node.js tasks and "Qlik Sense Service Dispatcher" - sometimes the Node.js tasks use some CPU%.


When I try to connect to local hub on http://localhost:4848/hub/ I get below error:

Error: connect ECONNREFUSED

   at Object._errnoException (util.js:1022:11)

   at _exceptionWithHostPort (util.js:1044:20)

   at TCPConnectWrap.afterConnect [as oncomplete] (net.js:1182:14)

Repairing the instalation does not help. Version installed is April 2018.

The only thing that I remember was installed last weeks and could have an influence on Qlik Sense was Virtualbox, but could it be the problem?

Re: Qlik Sense Desktop does not open.

Two more tests done:

- uninstalling Virtualbox did not helped

- running Qlik Sense Desktop as admin user works OK.
