Installing Extensions in QlikView Personal Edition

Could someone help me with installing an extension in QlikView Personal Edition, if possible?

I've downloaded the .qar file and then double clicked it. I get a message that seems to say that the installation was successful, but once I go into the web view and try to look at the Extension Objects tab, there is nothing there. Under Settings -> Document Properties -> Extensions I can see the extension under Active Extensions.

In what I've read, extensions are to be installed in the Extensions folder (Subfolder of QlikView in Program Files), but I do not have such a folders.

Any insight will be greatly appreciated!

It sounds like you've installed a Document extension. Object extensions are what's available in the webview Extension Objects pane

For document extensions, you go to Settings -> Document Properties -> Extensions and add the extension you just installed.

You will find your extension in C:\Users\<UserName\AppData\Local\QlikTech\QlikView\Extensions\

It might help if you share the extension you downloaded, it might just be a broken one.

Yes, I see them in there under Active Extensions but the functionality the extensions provide are not evident in the document, even in WebView

There are two types of extensions:

1) Document : Are installed into c:\Users\[youruser]\appdata\local\QlikTech\QlikView\Extensions\Document. They´re activated into your Document Settings

2) Objects : Are installed into c:\Users\[youruser]\appdata\local\QlikTech\QlikView\Extensions\Objects. They´re used as an usual object (graph or list box)

Aha! I was looking in the wrong place! I followed your path and just had to show hidden files once I was in the [youruser] folder. From there I navigated to the Documents folder and edited the extension's .css file which was set up so that no changes would appear unless you edited some of the code.

Was not broken, just required me to edit the .css file in order for any changes to show. Thanks for your help!
