From QlikView November 2017 SR1 (12.20.20200), command line reload (for example "C:\Program Files\QlikView\Qv.exe" /r document.qvw
) doesn't work anymore. The Qv.exe process is launched, but terminates immediately without executing any script command. Document log simply shows "Execution finished"
with no other script command.Environment:
QlikView Desktop November 2017 SR1 (12.20.20200) or later
November 2017 SR 8 (12.20 SR 8), November 2018 IR (12.30 IR) and later.
This behavior is caused by software defect QV-13683
, found in QlikView November 2017 SR1.
As of the current version (QlikView November 2017 SR3), the defect is still under investigation by R&D.
While waiting for the defect fix, some potential work-arounds may include:
- Copy Qv.exe of QlikView November 2017 IR (12.20.20100) to a folder and launch the reload command using this Qv.exe, OR
- Find parameter BackupBeforeReload=1 under [Settings 7] in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\QlikTech\QlikView\settings.ini . Delete this parameter or change its value to 0 and save the change.
