Function Call to Obtain Licence Key

Hi

Does anyone know if there is a function call (Like OSuser())  that will return the licence key number of the machine running the report ?

Thanks in anticipation

Great app (Book marked for future use) but for clarity I was looking at a stand alone / Local client function

I don't know of any function call from within QlikView / using Automation to get the license.

But maybe I'm just not aware of but in case nobody comes up with a much easier solution:

The LEF.txt file containing the license is usually located under e.g.

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\QlikTech\QlikView

though the actual path is probably system (OS version and locale) depending, but you could get the path from the registry I think, and there is a QlikView GetRegistryString function to use.

Then you might load and parse the file for your Key (first line in LEF.txt).

Regards,

Stefan
