Hi,

You should be able to run the extensions on the Personal Edition. Can you please check if the extension has been installed in the correct place when you opened the .qar file. The correct location in Windows 7 is C:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Local\QlikTech\QlikView\Extensions\Objects

Thanks

Adam

OK, have you installed the extension onto the server as well? It installs into a different location on the server.See the following link for more info.

Re: Extension in qlikview

What browser and version are you running, and which version of QlikView? IE11 changed many things and can cause problems with extensions.

OK, so that shouldn't be the problem.

On your QlikView Management Console can you please confirm if the System -> Setup -> QlikView Servers -> Security -> Allow Extensions box is ticked.

There is also the possibility that the Javascript in the extension might not be compatible with IE9. Which word cloud extension are you using as there are several of them around.
