Extract a log of users accessing Qlikview

Evening, your assistance is once again required.

I would like to extract a log showing the history of who uses Qlikview and which models they use. 

I am able to extract a adequate log from c:\ProgramData\Qliktech\QlikviewServer\Sessions_*.log. The entries in this file only cover people who access a model via QMC. In our environment most of our users access Qlikview via QMC using a web browser, so I have the record of these users.

There are however, some users who access the models directly via the QV desktop application (using a leased license from the server). They simply open a file and work on that model. These users and their access is not recorded in the log file mentioned above. Is there some other place where these users' utilisation of QV is recorded?

No, there is no log that records Desktop usage.  One option may be to use Windows auditing to track who/what accesses the files.
