Hi I m using Personal edition. And I m very new to this. I cant open these qvw files in Personal Edition.

If the QVW files are created by someone else then you should be able to open them at lease once, but you will get a warning message saying that you can only do this 4 times. After this you will not be able to load other peoples QVWs unless you obtain a licence.


And when you open it all data will be purged thus it might not be very interesting opening it without data.

Best option would be to locate example applications directly from Qlik since these you can open also with the personal edition without limitations.

There are some example applications included with the QlikView installation.
