Use qvb.exe in a batch file?

Hello everybody,

Question: is it possible to use the qvb.exe in a batch file? something like when we using qv.exe for reload documents, the problem is that I want to reload a document from a batch file but i don't want the "scrip execution progress" window appears


I tried this: C:\Program Files\QlikView\Distribution Service\qvb.exe /r E:\Document.qvw

Thank you in advance

Regards!

Using EDX you can instruct Distribution Service to reload your app

Thank you for your answer Clever, but another problem I have is that after the reoad of the document runs a macro that basically creates xml files, so I can't use EDX because my macro doesn't run

Not sure if its possible to call the "qvb.exe" from a batch file, but you can trigger a reload via command line or batch using the desktop clients "qv.exe".  See the referrence manual for specific instructions, there are flags for section access settings and more.

If your looking to programmatically trigger Publisher task from outside Publisher research the QMS API and EDX Triggers.

Hope this helps.

Well, so that´s not an easy choice .

Maybe you´ll have to get used to "script execution progress" window
