If you don't have publisher, Then the only thing I can think of to achieve this is via windows scheduler.
But for that you don't need to create multiple copies.
You can have task on the same application.
If windows task and QlikView tasks run at the same time, then there is no issue.
Instead you have to make sure that they both don't update or perform the write operation on the same QVD file.
Hope it helps
Thanks for your answer.
What I have done is that I pasted QV.exe on my production server.
I then, tried to reload an application and I got the error telling me QV couldn't connect to the database. And then, when I went into the ODBC Administrator to check the ODBC connector : there was none !
How does QEMC work ? It's on the same server and the reloads work from there.
What is the difference between reloading from QV Desktop and from QEMC ?
Thank you for your answer
I had a problem. When I opened QV, I had to lease a licence from my server. I did it.
Since then, the DSC service (which is on that same server), is not working anymore. It says in QMC that it is disconnected. I have tried to restart the services but it doesn't solve the problem.
Do you think that can be related ?
You don't need QV Desktop on your production server. IMHO it's even better to never install QV Desktop on a production machine, as Desktop is a development tool prone to programming errors and accidents that eat all available RAM.
Even without a Publisher, you still have a Reload trigger available called "On an external event". This trigger can be activated from anywhere using a commandline program called QMSEDX (see QMSEDX Enhanced). Use that commandline tool from windows scheduler as often as you want. Easy and very flexible.
