Thank you all so far for participating in the download and testing of the QlikView Governance Dashboard 1.0 Beta. To date we have collected a few issues which are currently being investigated and addressed for future versions of the QVGD. In the mean-time I suggested you keep these steps in mind.

Exit all QlikView Desktop insyances
Check task manager for QV.exe and ensure the process is not running
Do not use a VM
Install on a physical machine
Do not use directory names that contain spaces for the 'Install Directory’ and ‘Profile Directory’ (see first bullet)
Previous Versions of QVGD
Uninstall any previous version of the QlikView Governance Dashboard by using the Uninstall utility found in the Add / Remove Programs list
