Compatibility Between IE Plug-in 7.52 and QV Server 9.00 SR3

Hi guys,

We are planning a migration from QV 7.52 to QV9.00 SR3.

I found this bit of information in the QV9 Reference Manual...


3.2 Mixed Client/Server Environments
QlikView 9<-> QlikView 7/8
QlikView Server 7.52 and later will work seamlessly with QlikView 9 clients
as will QlikView Server 9 with QlikView 7.52 and later clients. Of
course, in order to make use of QlikView 9 specific functionality you need to
have both server and client of version 9.
QlikView 9 is not compatible with QlikView versions 7.51 and older.
Earlier Versions
QlikView Server 9 is not compatible with QlikView 6 clients. Nor are
QlikView Server 6 compatible with QlikView clients.


Unfortunately when I install the QV IE Plug-in 7.52 (Internet Explorer version is 6.0.2800) and I try to open a QV 9 document from the Access Point, the IE-Plugin client is unavailable from the list. So it seems that we will have to coordinate deploying the new client version as we are migrating the server.

Can anyone explain this? Is the reference manual really wrong?

Thank you,

Steve

Access Point check for the new object id that identify new plugin version, for this it's unable to see previous versions.
Anyway, i suggest you to upgrade plugin on your client to ver 9, regards.

So the plug-in and the server are compatible according to the documentation however the Access Point will not allow it.

That doesn't make a lot of sense but that's the way it is I guess.

I figured the QV9 plug-in works with the QV 7.52 server so we can start rolling out new client versions before we upgrade the server. This gives us more time to do the rollout.

Thanks!

If the Access Point does not work with an earlier version of the IE Plugin than the QVS (eg QV9 server and QV 8.5 Plugin), could you still access the applications using the QVP:\ ..... URL?
