QLik Automation Personal Edition version 12 with c#

I use Visual Studio 2013 / c#:

Is there any possibility to automate / programmatically use Qlik View Application / Document ?

I also use QlikView Personal Edition 12 (free / not QLikView Sense)

Which are the right references, do I need a plugin ?

I read several articles but did not found a suitable answer which dlls I really need.

Can anyone send me sample code for getting access to local qLik instance and objects (I do not have server solution)

and which dlls I need and where I find them ?

Thanks in Advance

using QlikOCXLib;

using QlikView;

QlikOCX q = new QlikOCX();

  q.OpenDocument("C:\\ProgramData\\QlikTech\\QlikView Tutorial\\German\\Arbeiten mit QlikView\\Test.qvw");

here i got error: catastrophic failure

Hi Tobias,

some comments:

1. you asked in the Qlik Sense Area and not in the QlikView.

2. Why you like to start a new project with QlikView.

3. My personal oppinion: don't try to "flogging a dead horse", make new thinks with sense.

bye Konrad

Hi,

we started som time ago to test and use qlikview,

did not really understand what qlikview sense could mean in the future ?

I had no understanding which will be the best way for future.

So if I understand your comment correctly then qlikview is not supported or at least not developped futher any more ?

So would you recommend to use qlikview sense ? is this also free ?

Qlikview is definitely still supported and being developed, but the ability to extend and integrate through APIs is one of the areas where Qlik Sense provides a lot of advantages over Qlikview.

I'm afraid this is outside of my area of expertise, but I was advised that there is this thread that might be related to what you are trying to do:

https://community.qlikview.com/thread/165760

Otherwise my recommendation is that you post your question in one of the QlikView forums as you are likely to get more readers with knowledge in this area there:
