This error message indicates that QlikView QVPR is corrupted.
I. If you have only started experiencing this recently, reverting to a backup of a previous QVPR version is advisable.
Follow those steps to fix the issue, or see How To: Restore QVPR From Backup
- Stop all the services
- Open folder C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\ManagementService\QVPR\
- Make a manual backup of all XML files, then delete them
- Open sub-folder Backups
- Select the zip file from the day before you faced the issue and unzip it in the QVPR folder.
- Restart the services.
II. If this issue has been existent for a longer while, it may be necessary to look into removing faulty Distribution Service / ReloadEngine references.
For QlikView 11.20 SR15 and up, as well as QlikView 12.x see ReloadEngine@SERVERNAME is down displayed in the QlikView Management Console after an upgrade
III. If the issue presents itself during a new installation, the best approach may be to rename the ProgramData\QlikTech\ManagementService folder, restart the Qlik Management Service which should recreate the directory and all the default settings and QVPR data. Note: all the save settings are restored to default and tasks are flushed)
