QV Server - do we need a PDF reader installed serverside?

Hi Guys,

For some reason my client strip all PDF readers from servers, is there a way to launch or via url have a pdf document download to client via access point, without having a PDF reader installed on the server?

regards

You would use something like nPrinting to handle PDF Creation of server based QlikView Apps/Objects into a PDF format for distribution.

I've created reports and I need to print them from accesspoint.  But we don't have a PDF reader installed on the server.  Is there a way where we can use the pdf reader on client side?

Hi Lakwinder,

You need to install printer PDF XChange on the server then pdf-prints within the access point using ajax-client will be rendered on the server.


Once it is installed, you'll be able to see it under Devices and Printers section of Windows Control Panel.

Hi Lakwinder,

I believe if you have have adobe installed in your local system , then you should be able to print also the laptop should be connected to printer.

There is no need to install pdf reader in server.
