I just upgraded my QlikView Personal Edition from v10 to v11. Now for each document I personally created in v10 it tells me, that I have to transfer it, and that I only have four attempts for this. Is all the work I did with v10 really lost?
You are using a personal Edition which is a free version. There are some limitations on free edition, just like this. The restriction is that you can not open the documents created by other user or system.
So when you upgrade the QlikView, the new Qlikview software treats the earlier documents as created by other user or system, thus eventough same user has created them on same machine, they are treated as different. And when this happens, QlikView gives only 4 Attempts to recover it.
IMPORTANT: QlikView Personal Edition is limited to four recoveries per installation. When you recover a QlikView file created with a previous installation, it will apply your new user key to ALL documents created using the previous installation, not just that particular file.
