Try openning the zip. Inside the zip there should be a .qar and other files such as an example qvw.

Josh,

There is no .qar file in the zip file.

Thanks for the image.  The files from the image are what I would expect to see in a .qar file (when it is unzipped).  Change the extension to .qar and try again.  Then check if the extension has been installed.

That was what I did and I mention in my original post in Jul 14 that I get a message saying 0 files were installed.

I just tried renaming .zip to .qar and managed to install it !  I am not sure why it failed the last time.

Thanks

Hi, I too am looking for documentation on the QlikView SVG Map. I downloaded the zip file, renamed to .qar, and installed successfully. But, I can't figure out what format my data should be in, like state name or state code or FIPS number or what?

Here is the SVG Map quick start guide.  I'm not sure why it isn't included with the extension anymore.

Hope this helps,

Josh
