Scroll Prev Up Next More

Your XE3 license includes the use, within Q++Studio, of the qppstudio worldwide public holidays database which is updated annually on September 1st.


If you need more frequent updates, or you wish to use the qppstudio data outside of the Q++Studio software, then it is also possible to license qppstudio worldwide public holidays separately, as yearly Excel files, which may be used outside of the Q++Studio software. For more details, see the qppstudio licensing page.


Launching the Updater


To update the XE3 version of the Q++Studio worldwide public holidays database:


1.Make sure that you are running Q++Studio build 24366 of March 9th, 2024, or above. If not, please run the main program updater.

2.Double-click on the World Holidays updater desktop shortcut (as shown on the right).

Where to Run the Updater


Contrary to the main program updater, which needs to be run once per workstation, the above Worldwide Public Holidays Updater needs to be run once only, from any workstation, regardless of the number of workstations at your site.


Next Steps


Remember that applying the Q++Studio Worldwide Public Holidays Database updater only updates the public holidays located inside the Q++Studio Samples folder of the holidays manager.


To update any of the holidays that you may have copied from the Q++Studio Samples folder, you will need to use the holidays synchronization.




At the end of the worldwide public holidays update, a log overview of the changes is displayed. Once you close that Excel log file, you can always return to it and to past updates log which are saved in the Q:\Q++ServerXE3\Updates\WorldHolidays\ folder.


Download Errors


If your firewall and/or network settings prevents the Q++Studio worldwide public holidays updater from downloading the necessary data files, as shown in the message on the right, then you can use manual updating workarounds:


To avoid such a procedure, make sure that your network settings are set as described here.
