I had a few dashboards that I'd made with Personal Edition for a portfolio, and came to want to re-use them since I'm looking for work again. Unfortunately trying to open them I was just met with "Failed to open" errors.
Hang on though! I can almost hear you linking the usual methods to fix this from here! Thank you, but none of those work! What's more, if I create a new dashboard, save it, and go to open it? I get the same issue.
I've uninstalled QV and restarted, no good.
I've uninstalled, manually purged all instances of anything mentioning 'Qlik' from the registry, and restarted, no good.
Qlikview just doesn't seem to be able to open any files on my machine at all? What's super frustrating is that about a month ago I managed to open one of them just fine.
Anyone got any other tips or suggestions? I'm kind of at my wit's end since I've got interviews coming up and I'm fairly sure they're going to ask me to see some of my work. Any help would be massively appreciated!
Are you able to create new documents with your QV Desktop? Are you able to open them? Could it be that the root of your problem lies in the limitation of personal edition. It is designed only to open application that you self made with just that desktop client installation.
Another thougt. Do you remember if your applications have Section Access implemented? Could it be the SA that is causing your problem.

Ok, thanks, that at least narrows it down somewhat!
I have checked the access, yeah, I made sure to open as administrator. I think it's got to be something to do with the Personal Edition limitations getting confused, because about a month ago I opened one of the older files just fine, and I hadn't changed anything about the install when it started failing. (I have since reinstalled a couple of times).
