We are having an issue where one of our new developers is getting the pop up message "the Qlikview document was created another QllikView Personal Edition ....". We thought we had the correct steps documented on how to lease a license, but the steps are not working. Any help is appreciated. Here are the steps that we were given, many years ago
Launch QlikView Desktop client
From the menu, go to File -> Open in Server...
Enter the address to QlikView Server using the qvp protocol (example: qvp:// nf-qlikserver)
Open a document. The license is now leased from the Qlikview Server
Close and relaunch QlikView Desktop client. You should now be able to work with local documents and the client is fully licensed.
Do we not have him set up with the correct authority? He continues to get the same warning messages even after taking these steps.
It has been a long time since I did this, but in addition to @stevejoyce checks I think in the desktop app you need to set Default License Lease Server (URL) under Settings - User Preferences - Locations;
Also note that the version you're running QV Nov. 2017, is no longer supported. So if you need to contact Qlik Support for assistance, you'll need to be running a supported version. Currently that is versions 12.40, 12.50, and 12.60.
