Reload qlikview desktop data from command line?


After searching for quite some days, I still don't succeed in reloading my data from the Windows command prompt.

Some background information:

Got some CSV files which are exported in a certain folder on certain time intervals.

These CSV files go into charts on Qlikview

Refresh the charts from command line (.bat file actually) (this part is not working)

I get the popup saying that I fetched x amounts of lines but I do not see any change in the charts.

Reloading data inside qlikview Desktop works (charts change), from .bat file does not.

I checked multiple security options but didn't change a thing.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Can you post an example of this file? When and how does it check the variable? Is the document perpetually opened in the desktop client?
