Supported and unsupported configurations

Supported configurations

  • All Qlik NPrinting components can be installed on the same computer. It is also possible to install Qlik NPrinting Server, Qlik NPrinting Engine and Qlik NPrinting Designer on different computers
  • You can import Qlik NPrinting 16 reports into Qlik NPrinting 17 or higher environments. You cannot import entire projects (.nsq files). See: Migrating report templates from older versions of Qlik NPrinting.
  • Reporting will work on both physical and virtual machines. In both configurations, virtualized applications are not supported. For example Qlik NPrinting Engine will not work if it is installed on one computer with a virtualized QlikView Desktop 12.00 distributed from a different computer.
  • It is possible to connect from the same Qlik NPrinting Engine to both a QlikView Cluster and a Qlik Sense cluster at the same time.
  • Qlik NPrinting can only connect to one Qlik Sense installation at a time, due to a limitation related to Qlik Sense certificates.
  • All supported configurations must be implemented within a single Active Directory domain.

Unsupported configurations

  • Qlik NPrinting 16 and Qlik NPrinting Designer June 2017 or later cannot be installed on the same computer.
  • Qlik NPrinting Designer June 2017 or later cannot manage Qlik NPrinting 16 projects (.nsq files), but you can import individual Qlik NPrinting 16 reports. See: Migrating report templates from older versions of Qlik NPrinting.
  • Qlik NPrinting Server 16 and Qlik NPrinting June 2017 (or later) Server or Engine cannot be installed on the same computer.
  • Qlik NPrinting Engine and Server and Qlik Sense Server should not be installed on the same computer.

    There are no known incompatibilities between these two products, but in a production environment, Qlik NPrinting should be installed on a separate computer (virtual or physical) from Qlik Sense because Qlik NPrinting Engine and Server will consume all the available resources of the computer they are installed on. This may lead to Qlik Sense crashing because of lack of resources.

  • Qlik NPrinting Engine and Server should not be installed on the same computer where QlikView Server or QlikView Publisher are installed.

    There are no known incompatibilities between these two products, but in a production environment, Qlik NPrinting should be installed on a separate computer (virtual or physical) from QlikView Server or QlikView Publisher because Qlik NPrinting Engine and Server will consume all the available resources of the computer they are installed on. This may lead to QlikView Server or QlikView Publisher crashing because of lack of resources.

  • QlikView Desktop versions prior to versions listed above are not supported.
  • QlikView Desktop and Microsoft Office cannot be distributed as virtualized applications. They must be installed locally on the same physical or virtual machine where you install the Qlik NPrinting components.
  • No operating systems other than Microsoft Windows are supported. For example, you cannot install Qlik NPrinting Server on a Linux computer.
  • You can only install one instance of Qlik NPrinting Server, Engine, or Designer on a computer.
  • You can only connect to one Qlik Sense cluster from a Qlik NPrinting Engine.
  • Domain trusts, multiple domains, and cross-domain implementations are not supported. For example, where Qlik NPrinting Server is deployed on one domain, the Windows user accounts mapped to Qlik NPrinting users cannot be domain accounts from a different domain that Qlik NPrinting Server is not a member of.

  • As of Qlik NPrinting June 2018, Qlik NPrinting is not compatible with Qlik Sense 2.2. If you are using an unsupported version of Qlik Sense, you should update your installation, even if it seems to be working.
