Its better to install QlikView in C drive and keep your application in other drive. So you have to install QlikView again in C drive, then you open your existing QV document.

But if you use Personal Edition... You will not be able to open your old application even though computer and login id are same...

Sorry dear, but I dont have solution to overcome this personal edition limitation.

I almost got mad when this happens to me 1 year before and have to purchase a licensed version.

For personal addition : you will loose the Applications created before, and if you reinstall it then maximum you can get only 3 Old documents ( Only first 3 open document).

and for other additions: There will be no loss.
