Convert .pgo files to .xml

Qlikview Server files .pgo can give us valuable information. PGO (Persistent Group Object) files are created by Qlikview Server and stored or placed in our root folder. The files are locked while the Qlikivew Server is running. The different pgo files contain information about borrowed CALs, CALs in use, Server settings and ticket data.
These files can’t be accessed without first converting them to .xml files.

Creating a .xml copy of a .pgo file

1) Stop the Qlikview Server service from the.
2) Add PgoAsXmlAlso=1 right under [Settings 7] in the Setting.ini file located in %ProgramData%\QlikTech\QlikViewServer. The Setting.ini file should look like this:

[Settings 7]
PgoAsXmlAlso=1
DocumentDirectory= …
….
….

3) Restart the Qlikview Server service
4) Go to the root folder where the .pgo files are. You will then see the .xml files.

I hope you find this useful.
