          Qlik Sense Desktop will not run on a Mac. It will only run on a 64 Bit Windows.


          Operating System

          Windows 7, Windows 8.x


          Intel Core 2 Duo or higher recommended


          4 GB minimum. Depending on data volumes more memory may be required.1

          Disk Space

          500 MB total required to install

          .NET Framework



          Local admin privileges to install

            Complementing Andy's answer, what you could do is to install a virtual machine on your Mac OS with a compatible version of Windows and put Qlik Sense on it.

              Hi nour,


              I would recommend using VMware Fusion.  This allows you to create a Windows virtual machine that will run Qlik Sense.  VMware Fusion offers a free trial so you can test it out.  Best bit for me is that it has a feature called Unity which allows reasonably seamless integration with the OS X interface meaning I can drag Excel files from OS X into Qlk Sense.


              I have a MacBook Pro running this configuration and it is brilliant, performance is similar to my Lenovo ThinkPad.


              Note you will also need a Windows licence key.


              Hope this helps.

                  Et si j'installe la machine virtuelle j'aurais dans tous les cas besoin d'une licence de windows ?

                  Est -ce que je peux installer sur cette machine une licence craqué?

                      Hi nour,


                      Microsoft does have trial licences for some versions so you could experiment with this first eg install VMware Fusion and then download a trial Windows ISO from Microsoft and use that to build the virtual machine.


                      Hope this helps.
