Thank you Tamil Arasu for the response

In the thread suggested by you is saying one way to check the path Administrator/appdata/local for .msi setup to run

When i run that  .msi  setup then install wizard  displayed for install of previous version of Qv_desktop

Because earlier i was using 12 version but now 11.20

Any help

Saikishore - Have you tried this workaround?

Got o task manager and kill the "explorer.exe" in process tab. Then press "Ctrl+Al+Delete" to bring back task manager window. Then click "File" tab and select "New Task" and type "explorer.exe" and then press ok.

After doing that try installing the older version again i.e Qlikview 11.20.
