Hi Eric - thanks for your questions.
Are you installing the connector .exe on the AWS Server - I assume so - as I believe you cannot execute a .exe file locally on a Mac - correct?. Do you have installation rights etc on the Qlik Sense Server? We need a bit more information to understand the nature of the problem you are having, can you please send us screenshots etc, steps?
When applicable please mark the appropriate replies as CORRECT. This will help community members and Qlik Employees know which discussions have already been addressed and have a possible known solution. Please mark threads as HELPFUL if the provided solution is helpful to the problem, but does not necessarily solve the indicated problem. You can mark multiple threads as HELPFUL if you feel additional info is useful to others.
