    NPrinting Designer installation

     

    NPrinting On-Demand does not require QlikView NPrinting Designer installation. You need to have an QlikView NPrinting Designer installed if you want to modify NPrinting Project files, design report templates or configure tasks. Follow QlikView NPrinting Designer documentation to install it. QlikView NPrinting Designer will not be discussed further in this document.

     

    NPrinting Component installation

     

    This installation is required only if you use QlikView NPrinting Extension Objects on a developer machine on which QlikView NPrinting Server is not installed, but need to edit or create QlikView documents containing QlikView NPrinting Extension Objects.

    NOTE: Custom objects (IE Plugin) are no longer supported from NPrinting 16.0.0.0 and forward. Therefore components for IE Plugin custom objects will no longer be included in the installation executable files. Furthermore, we cannot guarantee that previous versions of IE Plugin On Demand Components (NP 15.7 or lower) will continue to work with the current and future versions of the QlikView NPrinting Server 16.0 and higher.

    To install the Ajax On Demand components on NPrinting Designer computer and or QlikView Desktops, simply copy the NPrinting Server installation file to the target computer, run the installation, select ‘Custom’ installation, remove “Server” from the installation setup and complete the installation.
