Supported and unsupported configurations

This section outlines supported and unsupported Qlik NPrinting installation configurations.

Supported configurations

For complete details on supported configurations, see the system requirements pages:

Installation

  • Qlik NPrinting can only be installed on C drives.

  • You can install Qlik NPrinting Server, Qlik NPrinting Engine, and Qlik NPrinting Designer on the same computer, or several different computers.
  • You can import Qlik NPrinting 16 reports into Qlik NPrinting 17 or higher environments. You cannot import entire projects (.nsq files). For more information, see Using the migration tool.
  • 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 distributed from a different computer.

Connections

  • You can connect a Qlik NPrinting deployment to multiple QlikView and Qlik Sense environments.
  • You can only connect to a QlikView Server that was initially configured using the QlikView Administrators group.

Domains

All supported configurations must be implemented within a single Active Directory domain. This includes:

  • Qlik NPrinting Server
  • Qlik NPrinting Engine
  • QlikView Server
  • Qlik Sense Server
  • Windows Qlik NPrinting Server services administrator
  • Windows Qlik NPrinting Engine service administrator
  • Qlik NPrinting repository database superuser
  • Qlik NPrinting repository database administrator

Unsupported configurations

Operating systems

  • Microsoft Windows is the only supported operating system. For example, you cannot install Qlik NPrinting Server on a Linux computer.
  • Qlik NPrinting cannot be installed on standalone Windows server computers. This is because a standalone server is one that does not belong to or is not governed by a Windows domain.

Installation

  • 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 a 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 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.
  • You can only install one instance of Qlik NPrinting Server, Engine, or Designer on a computer.
  • Qlik NPrinting does not support QlikView Server installations which use "Certificates" during the installation process. The QlikView Administrators group option must be used during QlikView Server installation in order to connect to Qlik NPrinting.

Domains

  • 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.

QlikView NPrinting 16 (Not supported since March 31, 2020)

  • QlikView NPrinting 16 and Qlik NPrinting Designer June 2017 or later cannot be installed on the same computer.
  • QlikView NPrinting 16 Server and Qlik NPrinting June 2017 (or later) Server or Engine 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. For more information, see Using the migration tool.
  • For more information about the end-of-life of QlikView NPrinting 16, see NPrinting 16 reaching EOL.
