    QMSEDX Issue – Error Creating Web Proxy



      I am having issues with QMSEDX.exe to execute tasks on my management console for certain users in our domain.


      The QMSEDX.exe and config file are located on a network location and a user executes these via a VB macro in a QVW dashboard via the Access Point.


      I have attempted this using 2 accounts on the same laptop (production and test account) with identical access to all the relevant folders and similar AD groups. It works fine with my production account but I am unable to execute the task from my test account.


      I run the following command using the cmd.exe which also works fine for my production account but not for my test account:


      Server2… \QMSEDX.exe" -task="Task Name" -password="Password123" -qms="Server1"


      I get the following error message when attempting this with my test account:

      “Failed to create a client to the specified Uri, retries=2.

      Error creating the Web Proxy specified in the ‘system.net/defaultProxy’ configuration section.

      Retry in 10s…”


      Both accounts are in the following Qlikview groups:

      • - Qlikview Administrator
      • - Qlikview Document Administrator (Both doc. Admins for the same folders)
      • - Qlikview Management API
      • - Qlikview EDX


      Both accounts also have full control access to the folders where the QMSEDX.exe is located.


      We have spent a lot of time looking into this and are unable to resolve this issue. I was wondering whether anyone else has come across an error like this, if so could you give us some direction as how to troubleshoot this further.


      Thanks very much.
