How do I enable "favicon" within QV Server? (display QV icon in browser address bar)

I would like my Access Point to show the QlikView icon in the address bar (similar to other popular sites)

Wikipedia documentation here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Favicon

I have tried putting an icon file in the directory (%\Program Files\QlikView\Web) and nothing happens.

Thoughts?

You can edit the idex.htm file (C:\Program Files\QlikView\Web) and add <link rel="shortcut icon" href=". /favicon.ico"> right below the <title> tag (see below). You will need to put you ico file there also. You may need to delete you browser history and cache also. I had to do that to get it to work.

This is an older post, but I figured somebody may find this valuable.  Using the built-in QV Web Server, in addition to BBT's solution above I also needed to modify C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\WebServer\config.xml to include the below code in the <Types> tag:

      <Type>

        <Extension>.ICO</Extension>

        <Content>image/x-icon</Content>

      </Type>

Afterwards I believe a restart of the QlikView Web Server service is necessary.  -Isaiah
