Having a special character (ä, å, ü) in the user name where you would like to install Qlik Sense in, the installation part of the Repository MSI could fail.
In the installation logs (by default stored in %UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Temp) you might found this error:
Action 13:46:57 49 POSTGRESQL_DIR: C:\Program Files\Qlik\Sense\Repository\PostgreSQL\9.3\bin\ Action 13:46:57 50 POSTGRESQL_SUPERUSER: postgres Action 13:46:57 50 POSTGRESQL_DB_DIR: C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Repository\PostgreSQL\9.3 Action 13:46:59 61 Error: initdb: could not open file "C:\Users*T³ffer*\AppData\Roaming\postgresql\ps_qlik.bin" for reading: No such file or directory Action 13:46:59 61 Error: initdb: removing data directory "C:/ProgramData/Qlik/Sense/Repository/PostgreSQL/9.3"
This defect is now fixed in Qlik Sense September 2017.
The only available workaround is to install the product with a user with no special characters.
