Governance dashboard is for meta data management.
For that you must have server.
For more details look at the release notes.
Thanks for your response!
As mentioned in the release notes, it just scans the log files of the QV Server and Publisher. It cannot scans the QVW log file and give the required details.
So that's the reason we can use the QVGD only where the QV server is installed. Am I correct?
I am confused after reading the below lines in the release notes, it says it can be installed in the Windows 7 also. If so then why do you say that we must have server installed in our local machine?
1 System Requirements
The Governance Dashboard can be installed onto computers with the following operating systems:
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 SP2
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2
Microsoft Windows 7 Professional
Microsoft Windows XP, sp3 or higher
VMware images with these operating systems can also be used.
The Governance Dashboard can be used to scan only QVW, QVD and QVX files, without Server/Publisher. After installing the GovDB, simply point to the folder(s) that have the QVWs and reload. No server or publisher required.
I confess that I'm not sure if it works with unlicensed Personal Edition (desktop), but you could try.
If you don't mind can you please brief me what details we can get when we scan only the QVW and QVD without Server/Publisher? I want to understand know those details to explain it to my management. Also if you have any PDF which contains the Screen Shots of the latest version of the QVGD? Can you share the same with us please?
But in my case the Governance Dashboard gives an error
" Profile directory does not exist, cannot be reached or is empty. Please validate path:\\servername\ProgramData\QlikTech\Governance_1.1\profiles\ Note: If you are referencing a UNC share, you must point to a subfolder within the UNC root and not directly to the root folder. "
and i checked in the Script there is only one line

Pls advise how should I proceed in setting the Governance dashboard in my local machine?
What are the paths you are using? It looks like it is looking for the profile to be "\\servername\ProgramData\QlikTech\Governance_1.1\profiles\"
Check the file paths on the configuration page to be sure they exist and are accessible from every server that will be reloading the app.
For example - the default configuration is:
