Do you know how create this qar file? I know that can be open using any unzip or unrar program, but I am wondering how can we create one in a way that with a double click you can install it, in this way would be a easy to install and deploy extensions.
Also, you should know that in QlikView 10 double clicking an extension will install the extension for use by QlikView Desktop, but if you want to use the extension in a document opened via QVS you must install the extension manually.
Here is the complete listing of directories the extensions get stored in (by operating system):
• Windows 7 & Server 2008 ○ Desktop C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Local\QlikTech\QlikView\Extensions\Objects ○ Server C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\QlikViewServer\Extensions\Objects
• Windows XP & Server 2003 ○ Desktop C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\Local Settings\Application Data\QlikTech\QlikView\Extensions\Objects ○ Server C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\QlikTech\QlikViewServer\Extensions\Objects
I have created an extension and wants to send the code to my co-workers so I created a .qar file as per the instructions mentioned in this post. When my co-workers double clicked on the qar file, qlikview did copy all files into the /extensions/objects folder but since another sub-folder was not created with the extension name, they are getting error message in qlikview and the .qvw file is not showing any extensions in there.
So my question is, how to create a qar file which will create a sub-folder before extracting script files?
