You had more than 8 tasks running at a time.

You could increase the 45 minutes timeout for processes to wait for an available engine. You should also check if there are any QVB process left hanged and kill them if there are.

I think Daniel is asking you to change paramete in QVDistributionService.exe.config file located in C:\Program Files\QlikView\Distribution Service folder. Parameter is QvbWaitTimeoutMinutes.
