IE Plugin usage?

Hi All,

Is there any possibility that we can avoid the usage of IE plug in in qlikview environments?
Because, whenever the QV upgrade happens, all of our clients needs to upgrade/install plugin in their machines and  this leed to a huge work around.

Thanks,

Ganesh.

Re: IE Plugin usage?

Hi Ganesh,

Yes its right each and every time you have to uninstall/install after upgrade happened.

So, I think you have to uncheck/check mark IE accordingly in QMC --> System --> Setup --> Qlikviewweb servers.

Best pracice is, Use AJAX Client instead of IE.

Below are the PROS & CONS

IE Plugin

Pros

    Users can resize screen to fit

    Users can run macros

    Close fit to desktop view of document

Cons

    Plugin has to be installed on each client

    Plugin has to be uninstalled & reinstalled when server is upgraded

    Extension objects not available

    Only supported for IE not other browsers

    Session collaboration not available

Ajax client

Pros

    No installation at client

    Extension objects can be used

    Session collaboration

    Notes and annotations

    Supported on various browsers

Cons

    Screens cannot be resized by users

    Object positions and size can vary compared to desktop client

    Macros not available

IE Plug In is not installed on Clients its on serverside, do you mean desktop?

Sorry, it is a Client installation.

There is a settings in QMC where you can tick or untick if IE Plug In should be available on server.

Hi Ganesh,

You can take help of your IT support team to run IE plugin as patch file like other important software for all users.

Hi Amit/Ganesh,

Yes it is good and  also one of the approach.

But whenever they upgraded the versions, they should have to follow the approach.

Instead of using IE, recommend Ajax Client.
