Allow installation of Qlik Sense Desktop on Server editions of Windows

It would be good to have Qlik Sense Desktop available for installation on Windows Server rather than just locked to WIndows 7/8/10. With the growth of SaaS and the introduction of Qlik DataTransfer, it would make sense to allow Desktop to be installed alongside DataTransfer to facilitate more complicated extract and load procedures from on-prem data sources i.e. incremental loads. 

Desktop could be turned into a Client-Managed 'lite', and bundled in with SaaS, but removing the development of Sheets etc. just loading data.

Good suggestion. Just installed QlikView Desktop on a clients server to extract a SQL Stored Procedure. Client was a bit surprised that we had to install an old version of Qlik since he wanted an upgrade from QlikView to Qlik Cloud.

I might even prefer a lite mode of the desktop application for we often install the QDT on a server with other applications.

Good shout re QlikView desktop, I forgot that could be installed on a server OS.  Ridiculous we would need to consider QV Desktop, but it's a sort of good workaround, if you don't need any of the more modern data connections
