With the help of Qlik support, spotted the issue. Appears to be a known .NET problem:
The issue was that there was a extra line for "<DbProviderFactories /> " within the config/machine.config some how ( Unfortunately, MS knows the background why is creating an extra line) it was creating this line as result Qlik Sense was seeing empty and thought that needed Framework provider to be installed correctly. After removing the line, it actually fixed the issue since it is not need to have that extra empty line. You can read more:
Once this extra was removed, I am now up and running!
1. Did you try to actually wait 5-10 minutes after you boot your machine? and then start QMC ( had that happen to me i was rushing to open console but services were not loaded yet . )
2. Make sure your services are running . press windows+r type: "msconfig" > services tab , and check if you have Qliview in the list and if you do that its selected.
Hope it helps .
I have a similar problem with:
OS: Windows Server 2012 R2
Qlik Sense Server 2.1.1
No IIS installed
Could not contact local repository to retrieve proxy settings No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 127.0.0.1:4242
The first time I installed qlik sense everythings worked fine but after I restart the server either QMC and HUB doesn't works anymore.
Please help me I dont'know how to fix it.
Many Thanks in advance.
