          Hi,

           

          If you are using the Desktop you are allow to lease two license. I would check the QMC to see if that has happen already. When you lease a license it is assigned to not only the user but also the machine.

            You will have to license your personal edition. You cannot open other QVW's that were created by another user with personal edition.

             

            When to use License Lease

            Use License Lease if you don't have a QlikView Desktop license or if running out of QlikView Desktop licenses

             

            Prerequisites when leasing a license

            The following prerequisites must be met to lease a license from QlikView Server

            • Small Business Edition or Enterprise Edition of QlikView Server
            • Named user CALs
            • CAL assigned to user


            Settings in QlikView Management Console

            The following settings are required in QlikView Management Console (QMC) on the QlikView Server

            • System > License > QlikView Server > Client Access Licenses (CALs) > General > Check 'Allow license lease'
            • System > License > QlikView Server > Client Access Licenses (CALs) > Assigned CALs > Select the specific user > Assign CAL


            Leasing License from QlikView Desktop

            In order to lease a license from QlikView Server the following steps needs to be done on the client:

            Option 1: (If User domain and server authentication are the same)

            1. Launch QlikView Desktop client 
            2. From the menu, go to  File -> Open in Server...
            3. Enter the address to QlikView Server using the qvp protocol (example: qvp://myserver )
            4. Hit Connect
            5. Open a document.  The license is now leased from the Qlikview Server
            6. Close and relaunch QlikView Desktop client. You should now be able to work with local documents and the client is fully licensed.


            Option 2: (If custom authentication mechanism is used - v10 SR4 or later & v11 only)

            1. Open the QlikView Desktop client
            2. From the menu, goto Settings > User Preferences
            3. Go to the Locations tab and select QlikView Server AccessPoint (URL)
            4. Click the Modify... button
            5. Enter the URL to the QlikView AccessPoint, configured using Custom Authentication
            6. Click OK
            7. Click Apply then OK
            8. From the menu, goto Tools > Open QlikView AccessPoint
            9. Login using the custom credentials
            10. Open a document if a User CAL has not already been assigned. The license is now leased from the QlikView Server
            11. Close and relaunch QlikView Desktop client. You should now be able to work with local documents and the client is fully licensed.
