Reloads of QlikView Documents are failing with the following error:Invalid custom connector QvSAPConnector.dll
Used QVConnect: D:\PROGRA~1\QlikView\QvConnect64.EXE
CUSTOMCONNECT TO "Provider=QvSAPConnector;ASHOST=test.host.com;SYSNR=32;CLIENT=700;Log=1;KeepCasing=1;NullDate=1;XUserId=ENCRYPTEDUSERID;XPassword=ENCRYPTEDPASSWORD;"Note: The error above can be seen in also when using other Qlik Connectors (e.g. GeoAnalytics), and the solution follows the same reasoning discussed below. The .dll part of the error and customconnect string would reflect the specific connector related to the error.
The SAP Connector DLLs do not show in the Edit Script window in QlikView although they are definitely installed.Environment:

QVconnect64.exe performs a search for the Qlik SAP DLL files when you launch QlikView. If for some reason it cannot locate or load the DLLs, they do not appear in QlikView.
By running Process monitor and filtering only processes with the name QV.exe and QVconnect64.exe you can see where the process is looking for the DLLs and whether it successfully finds them:Process Monitor Filter settings
In this example you can see a SAP DLL has been located in the QvBexConnector folder:
In this example you can see that the DLL has not been located and will therefore not appear in QlikView:
