    Deploying Extensions to Server?

      Hi all -


      Having a little trouble deploying two extensions to our server.  I have opened the individual files and dragged the .qar files into them to install them, and then enabled them in Document Settings.  They have also been unzipped (.qar files renamed to .zip and then unzipped) and the resulting folders have been dropped into QlikviewServer\Extensions\Objects.  Unfortunately, they don't seem to work.  Any ideas?  Do we need to reload anything after doing this, or should the extensions be available immediately?  Thanks!

          Try these... If not share those extensions i will test them out.


          1. Double clicking on .QAR file will install the files under your User account. No need to rename to Zip.

          Based on the extensions type it will be installed in "Document" or "objects" folder.


          For Document Extensions:


          For all other extension except Document:



          2. Copy the extension from above location to SERVER location.

          Default location:

               C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\QlikViewServer\Extensions\Document           ----> For document extension

               C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\QlikViewServer\Extensions\objects           ----> For all other extensions


          If you are using ALTERNATE location other than Default location place them appropriately.

          you can find the location by goign to "QMC --> System --> Setup --> Qlikview servers --> Folders

            There are two types of extensions:

            1) Document : Are installed into c:\Users\[youruser]\appdata\local\QlikTech\QlikView\Extensions\Document. They are activated into your Document Settings

            2) Objects : Are installed into c:\Users\[youruser]\appdata\local\QlikTech\QlikView\Extensions\Objects. They are used as an usual object (graph or list box)



            make sure you have installed extension on the below paths.

            Windows XP:


                C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\Local Settings\Application Data\QlikTech\QlikView\Extensions\Objects

                C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\Local Settings\Application Data\QlikTech\QlikView\Extensions\Document
