Hi, does anybody have any experience in installing QV on Linux? I have tried it with wine, but it doesn't work

Re: QlikView and Linux

QlikView (QV) nor Qlik Sense can be installed on linux.  Both are windows only. Qlik Sense is windows 64 bit only.

However both support browser based users , and those users can use browsers from the linux PCs to access the server though.   And when it comes to Qlik Sense, the browser will support developers as well as users.

So in the end a developer on Linux can develop in qlik sense as well as use Qlik Sense as  as user as long as the Qlik Sense server is running on a windows server.

Hi - yes for QlikView you are correct. Cannot modify script from the browser with out of box capabilities.

For Qlik Sense the answer is that you can do all development including creation or modification of the script from the browser.  Just mentioning since this post was put in the 'Qlik Sense' forum even though you mentioned 'QV' (which typically refers to QlikView).

Re: QlikView and Linux

fyi i'm using qlikview on a machine with debian8+wine 1.6 (it works also on ubuntu 16.4+wine staging 1.9.23)

it's a qlikview 11 licensed copy, and it runs locally and opens qvw files locally, and they're usable

it isn't able to update data from iseries (i think it's a client access odbc fault - also installed into wine)

i'm not using that machine against a server

in winecfg i addedd gdiplus dll, order: builtin,native

i have other libraries installed with winetricks, i can't really say which ones are the most important to make it work, btw....
