QV 11 - what basic requirments for distributing PDF reports via SMTP?

Trying to set up a report distribution for users through SMTP in PDF format.

At the moment i have a QV server 11 and publisher. And, after reading community, i've installed qvPDF (http://sourceforge.net/projects/qvpdf/) and set up qvPDF as a default printer on the working server.

Next, i'm trying to create new task for source document and at "File type" tab choose "PDF report from source document" option. But it's still disabled and i can see message below - "To enable distribution of a PDF report, please acquire the appropriate license".

Do I really need another kind of license or the publisher license is enough? Or what am i doing wrong?

Thanks!

In order to be able to use QlikView PDF Distribution you need a Publisher License with PDF Report distribution enabled.

Both those items Publisher & PDF Report Distribution are licensed separately.

You can also try doing this with macros, please look through the forum as this has been covered extensibly.

Ok, thank you very much!

Before I have read the license terms in different sources, and there was different information about this ((
Thus, in one place it was said that only publisher is enough for that.

Thanks
