On successful activation the "Installation Log" will show LEF details for the license, if LEF license server can be contacted. This information is only to verify that the correct license has been applied during activation and is not written down in any LEF.txt or similar.

In Windows Explorer go to C:\Program Files (x86)\QlikView\GeoAnalyticsLicenseTool
