QlikView Governance Dashboard Beta - Pre-Installation Notes


QlikView Governance Dashboard Beta - Pre-Installation Notes

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.

The following list contains notes and recommended instructions when installing and using the QlikView Governance Dashboard Beta 1.0.

  • Windows XP or Windows 2003 server
    • Create the following Directory: C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Governance_1.0Beta
    • Run the installation wizard and change the default install location to: C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Governance_1.0Beta
  • QlikView Desktop
    • Exit all QlikView Desktop insyances
    • Check task manager for QV.exe and ensure the process is not running
  • VM Images
    • Do not use a VM
    • Install on a physical machine
  • Directory Names
    • 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


For example: If the QlikView Server is on a different machine than the QlikView Governance Dashboard and you want to scan documents that reside in the SourceDocuments directory on the QlikView Server, share the drive on the QlikView Server at this level: C:\ProgramData\QlikTech.

Then on the machine with QlikView Governance Dashboard - when you use UNC or a mapped drive letter - you will use the following path in your configuration:

Hallo when did you expect to fix the issue whith the virtual machine?


Hello btrompetter - all of these issues are expected to be addressed with in the GA release version 3.9 which is due to be out early next year. However there are plans to drop incremental Beta releases of the QVGD between now and then.
