    "Can Execute External Programs" in Qlik Sense

    Stefan van Brakel

      Hi all,


      I was wondering about the following.

      Previously I have built several QlikView applications which make use of Windows command functions (e.g. "EXECUTE cmd.exe /c del $(File)"). In order to let this work smoothly, I enabled the setting "Can Execute External Programs" in the Script Editor sub-menu.


      I would to transfer the script to a Qlik Sense application. Transferring the script is not a big deal but where can I find this option in Qlik Sense?


      I understand for Qlik Sense you will need to modify the Settings.ini  file located in the [C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Engine\] folder


      [Settings 7]




      However, I see this is not working as I still get the following error:

      EXECUTE statement not available in this script mode.


      Someone any idea whats going on? Please note the entire script is working fine in QV.
