Depending on your needs I would suggest looking at the new and free toolset for SF from Informatica. It is a data management toolset that basically allows replication of data from SF to another DB. Then you can run QV over this DB leaving the pains of hooking into SF using out of date API based connectors behind.
I ran an end to end test including setting up a SF account and Informatica account + downloads and execution, it took me half an hr. to complete.
