Limit Connectors shown in pull down

So what we would like to do is lock out the connector's from the drop down list of the ones that we are not going to be using.   Currently it list all

QvAdminDataProvider.dll

QvSAPBAPIConnector.dll

QvSAPSDConnector.dll

QvSAPEXTRConnector.dll

etc ,,

We are at this time only going to be using the

ODBC

OLE DB

QvSAPConnector.dll

So this is all we want the users to see.

Is there a way we can restrict this.

Re: Limit Connectors shown in pull down

Delete dll's from File System on C:\Program Files\QlikView

on DOS: del "C:\Program Files\QlikView\QvAdminDataProvider.dll"

Make a backup previous of Directory QlikView

Re: Limit Connectors shown in pull down

Without having to remove the dll.   Can limiting access to these .dll be done via authorization.    Example,

QvSAPOLAPConnector.dll, shows in the pull down, but we want to put security on this so if a user selects it and they are not authorized they get a message that they cannot access this database.

Create a Directory inside qlikview and put that DLL's files there.

Use EFS to protect the Directory created:
