Unable to add mounted folder

Change the account used by QlikView Server service from Local System to a domain user account with read/write access to the folder. Also as mentioned below, use UNC-paths. Mapped folder may not be mounted before the service starts if you reboot the server, causing errors.

Are you trying to use a mapped drive? I don't think you can use mapped drives with QVS, because it is running as a service.

You may able to use UNC paths -- \\server\shareName\folder -- but I have not tried this. If a UNC worked, the account running QVS would need permission to the share.

UNC paths should work fine as long as the account used by QVS service got read/write permission on the folder (pgo-files and shared objects will be created by the service in the mapped folder).

Mapped drives might work as well, but is not recommended.

Thank's for your post.

It works with unc path \\server\\folder, and with a domain account used with the windows service.

But with a domain account , we had problems on Oracle connection with Publisher and reload task.
