    Failed to load extension - detailed information



      In this discussion http://community.qlik.com/message/217664#217664 we reported a recurring message "Falied to load extension" in both the QlikView Server event log file and Windows Event log.


      We have been made aware of a bug fix that will be part of the next service release (date unknown).


      Anyway, should the error message be legitimate, where can we find more details to


      a) understand which report is attempting to load an extension?

      b) which extension is being called?


      Thank you

          I am also experiencing this error with a prospect where i did a SiB. I am pretty sure that i did not use an extension in my .qvw...


          What are the consequences of this error? Will the .qvw not be able to automaticly reload?

              No, that doesn't prevent the report to be loaded... it is just an annoying false error.

              If you check the other discussion http://community.qlik.com/message/225940#225940 you can see that the problem has been solved with patch 11291.


              Still, in those cases where a report really fails to load an extension, it would be interesting if the logs show both doc and expension names.

                  Yes i agree. For a SiB with 2 .qvw's it is not so much of a problem. But when you have a deployment with many .qvw's it is annoying to find out in which of the dashboards the extension is used in.
