Error when installing Qlikview

Hello everyone,

I am new to Qlikview and I have a problem when trying to install it. When I try to run the .exe package I get the following message:

"Error reading setup initialization file".

The OS is Windows 10 Home 64-bit. I've looked the forums where it was noted that for Windows 10 the "QlikViewDesktop_Win8andUp" exe package should be downloaded. The issue is that I can't find it, as the option is not available (see attachment).

I would be grateful if you could offer any help/advice.

Many thanks for your help!

Kind regards,

Hi there,

Looks like the correct installer, so I would be inclined to download it again and make sure that you run the install as ADMINISTRATOR

Best regards



Try starting service windows update 🤔
