This is what you get when you run the bat/cmd file. Instead, open a CMD prompt window and enter your command line (starting with "pathtoprogram\QMSEDX.exe...") and add the -verbosity=5 command line option.
There you have it: your copy of QMSEDX is either broken or not suitable to run on your OS. Can you download the latest copy again (1.0.4 I guess), check the zip for any errors and extract a new copy of QMSEDX?
I suspect it may be that I do not have the correct QV server box (ref your post)
10.120.0.400 is the server address
I have tried to follow the recipie from your post,to find the QV Server box (properties on my computer), but the computer name there does not work either.
this is the error message
Failed to create a client to the specified Uri. There was no endpoint listening at http://10.120.0.400:4799/QMS/Service.htm that could accept the message. This is often caused by an incorrect address or SOAP action. See InnerException, if present, for more details.

I don't think your server software is at fault. However, check the following:
10.120.0.400 is not a valid IP-address. It will never work
On the QlikView server, is port 4799 (the one you are using) opened?
Are you running this on the QlikView server itself (in a remote session)? If you are, use localhost as server name. If not, try to open http://serveraddress/qlikview to see whether the AP is showing up Whenever that works, you can be sure that the serveraddress is correct.
