Qlik NPrinting Engine with QlikView Desktop license error

Possible cause  

The Qlik NPrinting Engine needs QlikView Desktop installed, with a license activated for the Windows user that runs the service.

Proposed action  

Activate one of the allowed QlikView Desktop licenses.

If you use assigned CALs, you need to connect the QlikView Desktop to the QlikView Server at least once, at the beginning, using the same Windows user and computer as the Qlik NPrinting Engine service. A Named CAL license, taken from a QlikView Server, is valid only for a single QlikView Desktop user. In the case of a multiple Qlik NPrinting Engine installation, you must set a different Windows user and a different QlikView Desktop Named CAL license for each Qlik NPrinting Engine. If you use the same QlikView Desktop Named CAL license two or more times, the QlikView Server will disconnect all QlikView Desktops but one, and report generation will fail.

  1. Find Qv.exe in the installation path.
  2. Press and hold SHIFT, right-click Qv.exe, and then select Run as different user.
