Re: Tool for easy creation of load/performance tests of QlikView (v.10 and 11)

I'm using QlikViewTestScriptGeneratorGui.exe for the first time. On the Actions Tab, I have no "Action Insert/Delete" section. I have the "Import QLikview Document" section and the browse for folder works. However, I can't add any actions because no controls appear. Anyone else had this difficulty? I'm on Windows 7.

Update: I pulled the same install files over to a clean win2008 machine and it worked fine.

Update: I found a workaround. Add an action on the Win2008 machine and save the source xml file. Open this file on the Windows 7 machine and the controls will be visible.

When I open QlikViewTestScriptGeneratorGui.exe it throws the following exception.  I've double checked the prerequisites document and everything looks correct.  Anyone have any idea what's going on?

I've had that System.IO.FileLoadException in two circumstances.

1. Execution is blocked on one or more files. To fix, open properties on the zip file and click "Unblock" before unzipping. In one case I had to use the streams utility http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897440 to remove the block from the unzipped file.

2. In another case the log.txt file in ScriptGenerator dir was partially written. Deleting this file and letting it be recreated fixed the problem.

The reason of the error is probably due to how the downloaded zip-folder was unpacked.

First of all, the zip needs to be unzipped - the exe will not launch if the contents in the zip is copy/pasted. Secondly, it appears that right-clicking and selecting "Extract All..." will not allow the .exe to launch unless unblocking the zipped folder as Rob Wunderlich mentioned above. The issue may also be solved by using for example 7zip do unzip the folder.

Unblock worked for me also.  I extracted it with 7-zip for good measure and I am able to use the tool now.  Please update the instructions.

This tool is amazing!  Thank you!
