Sense installed in a Windows temp folder

Qlik Sense was installed by default in "C:\Users\[myusername]\AppData\Local\Temp\QlikSenseBrowser1.0.50500.0409.10". I suppose that "C:\Users\[myusername]\AppData\Local\Temp" is a Windows temporary folder, so this seems odd to me. Can someone explain why?

Re: Sense installed in a Windows temp folder

Hi Fernando - this folder structure is used by Qlik Sense Desktop. It is were the executable processes and cache are stored and are used /  recreated each time you start Qlik Sense Desktop. If you deleted them, starting - C:\Users\<userprof>\AppData\Local\Programs\Qlik\Sense\QlikSense.exe (Sense Desktop) will just re-create them when Desktop is started again. It is part of the normal operation of the product.

I just deleted mine for example, then started Sense Desktop again - and watched the folders be created.

If you would like more specifics, please let us know and we can dig further with our R&D team.

Re: Sense installed in a Windows temp folder

Fernando,

Is there anything located here? C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Qlik\Sense and is the .exe located -C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Programs\Qlik\Sense?

Re: Sense installed in a Windows temp folder

Hi Mike,

That explains it. I didn't realise the "C:\Users\<userprof>\AppData\Local\Programs\Qlik\Sense\QlikSense.exe" folder.

Thanks
