How to remove Publisher license

Hi all,

I just upgraded a QV9 installation (single machine, QVWS, Publisher) successfully to QV11Sr2.

My customer now wants to remove the Publisher license (for use on another server, different location), because Publisher functionality is not really needed at this site.

What would be the best approach to remove the Publisher license from the system? Just deinstalling QDS service? Any chance to migrate some reload tasks down to the QVS reload scheduler (losing of course the publisher only features)?

Regards,

Stefan

Stefan,

There is no backward steps here. You need to uninstall QlikView and cleanup the directorys and reinstall.

Thanks Bill,

I found some other threads in the meantime that proposed some hacks to remove the publisher, but none of them seemed to be clean enough. So I just followed your advice and reconfigured the server tasks.

Hi,

it's possible to remove the Publisher licence by deleting the REGINFO.TXT located in C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\ManagementService
