    QlikView upgrade 8.5 to 9.0 (x64)


      We are trying to upgrade our Windows 2003 SP2 x64 server from QVS 8.5 to 9.0. We seem to be running into problems with the .Net version that is required for 9.0.

      Asp.Net 2.0 was initially installed on the server, and we upgraded to 3.5 as requested in the QVS Reference Manual. We also installed .Net 3.5 SP1. The QlikView Management Console ran fine but the QlikView Enterprise Management Console kept showing error messages like the one below when we tried to change a setting and then clicked Apply:

      error loading image


      We then installed .Net 1.1 (as this is apparently not installed by default with x64 Windows 2003 software) and these errors went away. But Microsoft claims .Net 1.1 isn't supported on a x64 server, only x86, and therefore it's reverting all .Net components on our x64 machine to x86 versions of the software.

      I'd like to know if you have any advice as to exactly which versions and service packs of .Net we should be running on a x64 Windows 2003 SP2 server to get the best results? And should these be added as web extentions in IIS if we are using IIS as our web server?

      any adivce would help

      thanks [:)]
