Installing and removing Qlik Sense Extension bundle

You can install or remove Qlik Sense Extension bundles from your Qlik Sense deployment at any moment. If you have a multi-node installation, Qlik Sense Extension bundles are installed on the central node.

For information on how to install or import other extensions not delivered in our Qlik Sense Extension bundles, see: Installing, importing and exporting your visualizations on Qlik Help.

Note: All these steps need to be carried out in the Programs and Feature section of the Control Panel. You cannot modify or uninstall the bundle from the Add and Remove Programs menu.

  5. Accept the End-User License Agreement and click Next.
  6. On the Custom Setup screen, click on the bundle icon to select how to modify the bundle installation:
  7. If the bundle is installed, select Entire feature will be unavailable to uninstall it.

  9. Then, click Next.

  14. Manually restart the Qlik Sense Repository Service to make the changes effective.

You can verify that the changes have been correctly applied by checking the Extensions section in the Qlik Management Console (QMC).

Hi,

I am running QlikSense Feb 2022.I did a command line silent install and i have missed to include the extension bundle. Now its appearing like below in the Windows Programs list. Could you please let me know how i can install the bundle extensions. I have tried to repair the install and reboot. But still its not showing up.

Hello @aadil_madarveet 

I have just tested this with my own February 2022 installation and the bundle shows up like this and is installed. I cannot modify it or uninstall it independently. 

Have you verified if they are really not installed after you repaired/re-installed by checking their availability in the product?

See Visualization bundle for what objects come with it.

In the meantime, I will investigate when the behaviour has changed and if either the installer is defective, or if the current behaviour is working as intended.

All the best,
Sonja

Hello again @aadil_madarveet 

I verified the steps and they are still valid. What we failed to take into account is that the bundle can only be modified in the correct Programs and Features section of the Control Panel, rather than in Add and Remove Programs.

The view we are getting in the Add and Remove Programs view fits, as this bundle came installed with Qlik Sense.

All the best,
