Can a Qlik server product, like Qlik Sense Enterprise, QlikView Server or NPrinting Server be run on a client operating system, like Windows 10?
Qlik Sense 3 or higher
QlikView 11.20 or higher
NPrinting 17 or higher
There are several reasons for this. Among the other things, client OSes come with additional software that might conflict with Qlik products.
Also, client OSes have some limitations around memory and connections, while server OSes make better usage of the CPU and have additional security layers.
While Qlik Sense Enterprise and QlikView Server can both be installed on a client operating system, that is supported only for basic testing and development purposes.
Production usage is not supported.
Because of this, any case logged for client operating system environments will be treated as low priority (non-production), and worked on a best-effort basis.
Also, heavier usage and/or any complex testing/development environments might require moving to a server operating system (like Windows 2012 or 2016) as a first troubleshooting step.
In general, it's not a good idea running a server product on a client operating system.
NPrinting server is supported exclusively on server operating systems
