It's not.  While I did request for local admin rights to install the software, there is a workaround you can use to run it without an admin account.

just create a batch file as below.

Set ApplicationPath= "C:\Users\userid\qsest\Qlik Sense Enterprise Scalability Tools\Qlik Sense Enterprise Scalability Tools.exe"

cmd /min /C "set __COMPAT_LAYER=RUNASINVOKER && start "" %ApplicationPath%"

We have the sames issue here. Our users will not have admin privileges but we want them to create their own scenario's. Any reason why admin rights are required? 


Admin privileges are not required, you should be able to run the tools without this unless there's something in your group policy stopping it.

Will the scripts from the old tools that are being depricated, work with this tool and/or is there a migration path for older scripts? Thank you!
