Migration Planning:

  • Before you migrate please carefully review the following:
  • NPrinting 16 (32 bit) and NPrinting 19+ (64 bit) and higher versions must not be installed on the same server concurrently.
  • NPrinting 19+ must not be installed on the same server computer as QlikView and or Qlik Sense. See:NPrinting Supported and Unsupported Configurations
  • We recommend setting up NP 19+ in a separate environment with a separate dedicated NP server service account and evaluate NP 19+ separately from NPrinting 16. You may use your NP 16 server license for your NP 19+ installation but you would need to turn off your NP 16 server to mitigate licensing conflicts with existing maintenance agreements. If you wish to evaluate NP 19+ separately, you may be able to request a trial license from your Qlik Account Manager. 
  • NOTE: Unsupported QlikView items apply to NPrinting November 2019 and later versions and should be managed accordingly prior to performing the migration. See Qlik NPrinting: Unsupported QlikView Document items, System Configurations and other limitations


  • NPrinting November 2019 and later versions are a complete rewrite of NPrinting 16 (which was written in 32 bit architecture) vs  the current 64 bit architecture. You may experience performance differences between these separately architected environments. Additional NP engines 'may' be required to emulate NP 16 performance. Qlik Professional Services may also be engaged to assist with applying best practices to NPrinting report design and to address NPrinting scalability performance considerations. Please contact your Qlik Account manager for details.
  • QlikView 12.30 IR will be removed from supported NP 19+ versions. Therefore, this aforementioned version of QlikView cannot be used during the migration process.
  • Do not upgrade QlikView prior to performing the NPrinting Migration tool process. Doing so may introduce unexpected problems and issues in the NPrinting Migration process.
  • If using NP 16 Pixel Perfect scripting, you must 'enable' Pixel Perfect script execution. This option exists in February 2020 NPrinting and later versions: See Pixel Perfect Security 
  • If you are migrating to an version of NPrinting September 2019 or earlier (NP track) please visit the following link Migrating from NPrinting 16 to NPrinting 17+ (NPrinting September 2019 and earlier versions)
