Tweaks to help kronos timekeeper/hr run inside terminal server

I finally figured out how to get the pictures to display correctly in kronos HR under Terminal Server. Apparently the picture is downloaded as a temp file into the C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files folder. This is a rather random place for it but that’s a different story. So to bypass this I used SetACL.exe to give the TSE_Users change permission to the downloaded program files folder.

The bad part of this is that it opens an avenue for spyware, but surfing outside of the local network is pretty much locked down inside of TS.

The good part is they can see the pics

If anyone cares the SetACL command was SetACL.exe –on “c:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files” –ot file –actn ace –ace “n:seattle\TSE_Users;p:change

you might have to type it in, for some reason cut and paste wasn’t working for me. and SetACL can be found at

Windows XP service pack 3

So I installed, seems to work great! No great speed improvement that I noticed 🙂 but hey I was glad to not have it bluescreen my box.

Macro Trigger Limitations, how can I overcome them? Qlikview

As the manual notes the following triggers are not to be used in the QlikView Server environment, since they lack meaning or may cause unexpected results:


This being the case how can you have a macro run when a qlikview is opened through qlikview server?

Qlikview with Sqlite

I just used this ODBC driver

And then created a new ODBC and pointed it at my sqlite database, and then used a normal ODBC CONNECT inside of qlikview.
