Here are some things you can try:
- Open Qlik Sense Desktop and click anywhere on the Qlik Sense window. Hit F5 (or whatever your refresh key is) a bunch of times - between 2 and 10 usually works.
- Run the 'Repair' option from the download file. You can obtain the download file by filling out and submitting the form here: http://www.qlik.com/try-or-buy/download-qlik-sense. You can also get it from the downloads page if you have a QlikID.
- Sometimes after running the repair option your will get a 'Could not reach http://localhost:4848 hub' or other error - if that is the case, try step one again.
Thank you for your help! In the end it was a combination of things. We are still not sure exactly what was wrong, but the biggest of the issues was my virus protection. I had to completely uninstall before Qlik would work. We also had to play around with compatibility on Qlik as well as a weblclient service. But finally got it running!
