Qlik Sense Desktop installation failed


A couple of months ago I installed Qlik Sense Desktop in my PC, but a few days ago I had to uninstall it due to some issues.

Now I have downloaded the latest version of the web and when I'm trying to install it, I have an error "Installation failed" , "An error has occured" and refers me to a log file.

Reviewing this, I think the problem is in these lines, almost at the end.

Can anybody help me?

Did you right click on the installation package and select "Run as Administrator "?
