Is there a way to view the current Doc CAL ALLOCATION (not usage)?


Yes, if you use the -list=CAL parameter, you will se that there is a column in the output named "Document" - if that field is not blank, it's an assigned Document CAL.

If you have further questions, please post them in the Deployment & Management community forum. Thank you!

The documentation for the new feature from the SharedFileViewer "Added command line argument support to batch exports of bookmarks and objects without using GUI" is missing in this package. How can i export only special object ids with this feature?


This is missing in the documentation, for some reason. It should be contained in the ReadMe.txt file, but it must have fallen out.

Anyways; the first parameter is always to open a document, so any qvw path that is entered there will be opened in the tool at startup. The added syntax for exports is the following:

QvSharedFileViewer.exe “c:\mypath\myfile.qvw” –EXPORTALL “c:\mypath\myxmlfile.xml”

QvSharedFileViewer.exe “c:\mypath\myfile.qvw” –EXPORTBOOKMARKS “c:\mypath\myxmlfile.xml”

Sorry for any inconvenience this might have caused.

What is the meaning of [offset] while using QvSharedFileViewer.exe?

Is it possible to get the QvSharedFileViewer.exe tool in .Net Framework 3.5? (Other tools, too)
The customer environment is already deployed with .Net Framework 3.5 and it is not easy to upgrade to .Net Framework 4.0 since it is currently operating.


Kaung; The offset is the location in bytes from the start of the file where the object resides in the .shared file, since the format is binary. The offset ties together with the length of the object, which basically means its size (without data).

Regarding .NET 4.0; the tool uses functionality that only exists in 4.0 Also, installing a .NET framework package does not have to disrupt other services, since they are installed side-by-side with the rest of the framework versions. All the versions through 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 have separate folders and runs totally autonomous. Also, installing 3.5 or 4.0 does not require a restart of the server, in Server 2008 at least.

Hi Stefan,

Thanks for your answer.

So offset is the size of the object without data, right?

For .Net 4.0 installation, QlikView is currently running on .Net 3.5. According to your answer, does it mean there is no problem or disruption to QlikView even if I install .Net 4.0 on the same server that is running QlikView on .Net 3.5?

Is it possible to run tools(PowerTools) from other machine that is not running QlikView and remotely connected to Server which QlikView is installed?

With best Regards,

Kaung Myat Tun.

Kaung; No, the offset is where the object "starts" in the binary file. The length is the size.

About .NET; yes, theoretically.

About remote; yes, depending on what tool you run. They all have unique behaviors and needs. Some runs fine remote, some needs to be run locally.
