Trying to Delete QB Pro 2005

I have QuickBooks Pro 2005 installed on this computer. The computer actually came from the business I was working for, which is now closed. I went to "Add or Remove Programs" and tried to delete the program. The response I get is: "Action only valid for products currently installed".... I know the program is still installed and is showing 4962.00MB. When I go to "RUN", it shows there also. I do not have the discs to try to "reinstall" the program only to try to delete it again..... I've even tried to do a system restore, but can't go back that far.... PLEASE HELP! I'd appreciate any input you may offer..... Thank you!

This is often caused by a broken Microsoft Installler reference, or registry issues.

First, try searching the QuickBooks folder for a file called Reboot.bat. Once you locate it, run it.
Try to uninstall.
If that fails, Microsoft has an Installer Clean Up Tool you can download and run,
If all else fails, you may wish to contact an Intuit Pro Advisor in your area to see if they still have a copy of the 2005 disk to reinstall and uninstall with.

SOURCE: HELP DELETING QB 2005

This commonly means the Microsoft Installer settings for the program are damaged or missing. This is actually a fairly common occurance and can be a sympom of registry issues. Microsoft has an Installer cleanup tool that can be useful at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301. This usually resolves the issue. If you are still having problems, search the Quickbooks folder for a file called REBOOT.BAT. Run this file ( this re-registers the software with windows) then try the cleanup tool again.

Quickbooks pro 2005 error 7168


Usually a license number, product code error. Often seen on pirated software, but can also come from a damaged install.
Be careful, trying to reinstall an older version like this can result in the product going back to an old release, and the update files are no longer available.

I can't reinstall my Pro 2005 because it asks for Flash 7 then the cd tells me it can't install it.


You're several versions behind with your QB Pro, and also several versions behind with the Flash Player you're trying to install.

If you're reinstalling because you upgraded your operating system version, this is likely the root cause. QB 2005 is not compatible with Windows 7; neither is Flash 7.

While you may be able to install the program using XP Mode, that isn't the most reliable way of running it. I recommend avoiding uninstalling the .net framework files and "back versioning" as a way of getting around it, because it is likely to cause problems with other functions.

You may be best off to upgrade your Quickbooks version.

Hope that's helpful.

Error 7149 Quickbooks


Thanks, that worked! I first spent a half-hour on the phone with the non-tech support at Intuit and he walked me through that download. What the download does is update your original QB 2005 RC1 version to the RC9 version ("Release Candidate") where they've fixed some things (such as the Flash 7 install problem). Here's what we did:

1.) Removed Flash ActiveX 9 in Add/Remove Programs
2.) Downloaded webpatch from QB site (start here: http://www.quickbooks.com/Help...
3.) Closed QB (couldn't open it anyway)
4.) Installed patch.
5.) Restarted computer.
6.) QB worked!

Thanks for your postings. I hope this helps.

Thanks.

Opening QuickBooks Pro 2009


Sounds like your re-installation of QB did not update your registry files properly.

I would suggest:
1) make a backup of your data
2) uninstalling QB
3) delete the QB installation folder entirely
4) re-install QB
5) restore your data

If this doesn't work, I can provide "remote desktop support" to try a more comprehensive approach.

QB pro 2005 and Internet Explorer 8


As with all evolving software (as the well written ones are), as you update one you'll invariable need to update others. If you want QB Pro 2005 to work properly, you'll have to contact Intuit for any patches to their software to make it compatible with IE8. I suspect that Intuit would rather sell you an upgrade to their most recent version of QB Pro (hence lightening your wallet substantially). If there's functionality in IE8 that you absolutely HAVE to have, you'll probably be stuck paying for the QB Pro upgrade. Otherwise, you can simply stick with IE6 or 7 (as you've already reverted back to). Sorry there's not a better answer.

Error message Library not registered


I got the message "Line 25: Library not registered" after uninstalling QuickBooks Pro 2009 and trying to run my old version of QB Pro 2006.

(I had installed 2009 version to upgrade my QB2006 Pro version but got into problems with multicurrency support not being supported in the Canadian QB Pro 2009.)

Fix is VERY easy and I think it applies to anyone trying to run an older version of QB Pro after uninstalling a newer version.

Fix is to find the file "reboot.bat" located in the program files associated with the older QB version.
In my case it was found in "C:/Program Files\Intuit\QuickBooks Pro" folder.
Just double click on the file to run it. This file tells the system where parts of the QB program are located including the DLL libraries it needs. After running this file you should be able to run your old QB version OK. No rebooting necessary.

Assuming you have the install files for QB 2005, reinstall it with the original parameters and then un-install it. The missing file is stopping the un-install, and assuming that you cannot edit the uninstall parameters, about the only way to actually uninstall is to make sure the 2005 install is complete before you unload it.
