QVW deleted - with license assigned to it

HI All!

I think that I have deleted a qvw which had an license assinged to it, because I have one license missing and the file still seems to exist in the QMC, even though I do not have this file in my server file anymore.

What can I do to get the license back and to make this file to desapear from the qmc as well, as it does not exist anymore?

server,

Hi Silvia!

Create a new qvw with the same name (in the original folder), remove the license and remove the qvw from the qmc. After that you can delete the qvw.

Great Patricio!

Although I thought I had already done that, I had probably missed something.

Thanks a lot for saving the day!

I think this may depend on some of the other files associated with your main QVW. Previously I had tried creating a new QVW with the same name and it didn't work, I had to use the method I explained here: Re: Delete Ghost Documents and recover associated Document CALS

Just now though, the "new version with same name" method worked for me. This time I noticed that the Meta and Shared files were still there, it was only the main QVW that got deleted.
