Discussion board where members can get started with QlikView.
Well, I'm fairly new to QlikView, but have loads of experience with tools like MS SQL Server, Oracle, Excel, Access etc.
I work in a financial area and thus don't always have the underlying knowledge to troubleshoot installations myself.
Now here's my issue:
Yesterday I installed QlikView for the first time (version 10). It worked fine straight away and I could open previous models etc.
Then I wanted to make changes to a model and required to do so in SQL. I already have MS SQL Server Magement Studio on my PC, but the data I', after was on SQL Developer (Oracle).
So I installed Oracle, and BOOM, QlikView stopped working entirely. When I try to open a .qw file I get an error saying that Windows can't find the file (the same .qw file I'm opening)
Now this happens only on my PC, colleagues have theirs running fine.
Anyways, so I uninstalled Oracle and SQL developer, uninstalled QlikView, re-installed QlikView numerous times, but the same remains.
This is even if I remove the Oracle install completely as well.
Can anyone help? I'm guessing it must be the Oracle install that did something.
I suggest that you try after uninstalling Qlikview, going to Local Settings and delete the QlikTech folder before re-installing.
If Local Settings doesn't do the trick:
There are also registry settings that remain after uninstalling under HKEY_Current_User\Software\QlikTech.
Try deleting the registry key as well. The re-install will recreate both. As always, registry edits are at your own risk, so backup first.
