How to change the settings.ini in QlikView Desktop and QlikView Internet Explorer Plugin

Find below how to change the settings.ini file for a user within QlikView Desktop and QlikView Internet Explorer Plugin.
 

  • Close any open instances of QlikView Desktop Client or Internet Explorer with the Plugin loaded.
  • On the client locate the file settings.ini for the current user. Backup settings.ini before making any changes. The file can be found in the following location:
C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Roaming\QlikTech\QlikView\Settings.ini
 
  • Under the [Settings 7] section in settings.ini, create the setting wished setting like this example:

 

 

[Settings 7]
DisableRegistryInterface=1
DisableLayoutChanges=0
DisableScripting=1
[...]​

 


 Please note that there is not any built-in Qlik utility to propagate changes to the settings.ini files for multiple QlikView Desktop installations. Also, when the QlikView Desktop is updated to a higher version the settings.ini file needs to backed up before the installation.
