We can load binary data from qvw and qvf in qliksense.
Your Qlik Sense apps, in the new QVF format, are stored in %userprofile%\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Apps. If you drop an older QVW file into this folder and re-open (F5 works) the Hub, the app will appear and can be loaded into Qlik Sense. When you save it then, it will be saved in the new format. Right now, only the data and script will get converted into the new format, all UI will be lost.
You can try binary loading new generated Qvf file, if older Qvd is failing to load.
