    .Meta File editing

    Brent Nichol

      Is anyone aware of a way of modifying the .meta file? 


      My organization is migrating to a new Active Directory domain, and I want to ensure that users maintain their favorites on Access Point.  I'd like to find/replace the 'olddomain\' with 'newdomain\' for all .meta files.


      I haven't tried just editing the .meta file with a text editor, since I assume that might corrupt the file.


      Any assistance would be appreciated.

          Please check Power Tools.

            Maybe the power tools can help you because I don’t know if exist one application that can be modify a meta file, in this power tools has the SharedFileViewer and the manual says:


            META FILE READER

            This application can also read .meta files, to show data in them. All objects will be marked red

            (corrupt), this is expected. It will always only show one object node. Here you can find, amongst

            other data, authorization tables for Qlikview Server DMS security mode and Autoload/Preload flags.

            NOTE: This functionality is read-only with .meta files. None of the below functionality applies

            This is the only tool that you can use for check if the file is corrupt.
