QlikView Remove Local License by Command Line


in our company most of the named user licenses are leased from the server. However, there are still some users who have a local license key within their qlikview desktop client. We would like those users to use a named user licence derived from the server. We are searching for a solution that the local license is removed by, for example, a commandline argument, which automatically forces a "Clear License Information" in QlikView to force the users to use the server license method.

Is there any possibility to execute a "Clear License Information" command by using a command line argument?

Is there any other possibility like a registry update or the deletion of a file holding the license information?

Thanks for any suggestions,

Not that I'm aware of.


I don't think you can do it from within QV launch. But if you can whack this file with some other tool:


you will effectively delete the local license.
