Reduce Number of Applications at a time

Hi All,

We have one folder with N number of versions of our application with size of 3GB each.

Now we would like to reduce old applications.

Its taking time to open each qvw and then reduce.

Is there is any way, by which we can reduce multiple applications at a time.

Can we use command prompt for same.

Please assist.

Thanks & Regards,

Maybe something like this:

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

objShell.Run """D:\QlikView_Client\QV.exe"" /nodata D:\YourPath\YourFile.qvw"

set objQV = CreateObject("QlikTech.QlikView")

set newApp = ActiveDocument.GetApplication

set newdoc = newApp.OpenDocEx ("D:\YourPath\YourFile.qvw",2,false,,,,true)


newdoc.SaveAs "D:\YourFile.qvw"


which runs in a loop through your folders.
