If you have "Generate Log File" enabled on the QVW itself, then the document log will be logged to the same folder in which the QVW is stored.
Are you attempting to locate the document log of the QVW file associated with a QlikView Publisher/QlikView Reload Engine task? Check QMC > System > Setup > Distribution Service > QDS@ > General tab > Application Data Folder field and append \1\Log\<date>\,time.\,app name> folder to confirm the location.
Hope this helps
Hi Chip, thanks for the response.
I do have the "Generate log file" enabled in the .qvw and --IF-- the document reloads rather than hangs, the log file shows up next to the reloaded application when the reload finishes. However, the log file ONLY shows up when the reload has finished. This is a change of behavior from v11.2 SR9, when the log file would show up as soon as the .qvw started reloading and it would update as the reload was progressing.
in V12 - when the .qvw is running, the constantly updated log file is in - C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\QlikView
In V11.2, the location of the log when the app is running is in the .qvw folder, which is much more convenient. That above folder in v11 only contains one file: "Lef.txt".
Anyone have a suggestion how to change the location of the .qvw log file?
and the comments in the QV12 SR1 release notes, I added one line to the C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Roaming\QlikTech\QlikViewBatch\Settings.ini file
Now, when the apps are reloaded by the scheduler, the log files are written immediately to the local .qvw folder.
However, this did not change the logging behavior when reloading the .qvw using the QV IDE.
I've found the solution how to change the logging behavior in QlikView Desktop.
1. Run QlikView Desktop.
2. Go to Help -> About QlikView...
3. Right click on QlikView Logo in the left bottom corner of the About QlikView window and the Setting window will open.
4. Find "LocalScriptLogging", change its value from "1" to "0" and press "Set".
That's all. From now logs will be written directly to the application folder (like in QlikView 11) and not in local folder (by default C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\QlikView).
