Qlikview personal edition is available in Qlikview website which is free to download. Using personal edition, we can create our own dashboard and do analysis. We can open a different file which is created in another personal edition, but we cannot open a licensed qvw file in the personal edition.
We have an option to lease the license in qlikview. Below are the condition on we can lease a license,
· A leased license will expire if has not been updated for 30 days.
· Updating a leased license is done automatically in background, provided that QlikView can connect to QlikView Production Server.
· It can also be done manually by opening a file on the server.
Step 1: Start qlikview desktop
Step 2: Open file then ‘Open in Server’
Step 3: Enter your production server URL starting with QVP. It will also work with http but require manual login.
Step 4: Select a document and click open.
Step 5: Close the document. Qlikview‘s Start Page will now display license lease information.
