Re: Qlik Deployment Framework 1.7.3

Hello QDF Support Team.

I have installed QDF 1.7.3 on a new environment. (OS Windows Server 2016)

If i update the existing System.Variables.csv file with new records. (..\QV_Sourcedata\Supplychain\Dev\0.Administration\3.Include\1.BaseVariable)

Then launch "variable editor", i get the following error.

I get a dialog box saying "Variable editor could not find Deployment Framework Core The application will not work"

If I exit the dialog box, I receive another generic error "Error: internal fatal error (-130).

Kind Regards,

Arish Delon

Re: Qlik Deployment Framework 1.7.3

Try this below (from the QDF QlikView documentation)

Access Control (UAC)

Variable Editor is a QlikView application that graphically controls Deployment Framework. System and Custom Global Variables can be added and edit within Variable Editor and all containers are plotted in a Container Map (master is stored in Administration container) this map is edited and containers created using Variable Editor, start by clicking on the Variable Editor Shortcut. If using User Access Control (UAC) right click on the VariableEditor.cmd and run as Administrator.

Set security to run Variable Editor

  1. Open QlikView Desktop and select Settings/ User Preferences. A User preferences box will appear
  2. Change to Security tab under Always Override Security, section check in Script and Launch press Apply

Hello Magnus,

Yes, I did right click on the VariableEditor.cmd  and run as Administrator, to override User Access Control (UAC).

I do have Local Admin access to the Server. I did reply back to you with log file. I did not include the log file here since it might have confidential information. I have capture few lines from the log. It does not say much.

Re: Qlik Deployment Framework 1.7.3

Hi Arish, it could be that VariableEditordoes not work on Windows2016, have not tested on that platform. You could say that VariableEditor is legacy as the Deploy Tool replaced VariableEditor when creating containers. The only thing VariableEditor does better is adding custom variables, this can be done using a standard editor and modifying the Custom.Variables.csv file within each container (to add variables for apps within that container) and in shared container (to add variables for all apps). I will release an updated version of VariableEditor today with a new built in license, but I don not think that will help you in this case. Regards Magnus
