Question about Intuit QuickBooks: Pro 2005 for PC

Open Question

Quickbooks won't open

I tried the system restore and it says that there haven't been any changes. I picked a date a week before I did the windows updates. Now what? I have 2007 pro but I can't get this message to read it as a valid product so I'm putting it in as a 2005.

    I have the same problem. Even though the program is installed on my PC, the program does not run. I may select the program, click open, what have you, and the program does not launch. I opened the task manager tab, to watch what happens, and QB will flash onto the task manager for 1 second or so and then disappears... ???

SOURCE: QuickBooks has experienced an error on startup

Step one is run scandisk. If you have a cross linked or corrupted file it will sort that out automactically. Step 2 is to google "where is the quickbooks repair feature".....odds are someone has used it before. Step 3.....save your Quickbooks database (in at least two places) and delete and reinstall Quickbooks if all else fails.

SOURCE: Quickbooks Pro-restoring a back up from a previous version 2005

If is any help - we have just had the same problem.......had version 5 (very old) of QB
changed computer to Vista and would not work so had to buy Pro 208 for Vista . We really had to get in touch with Quickbooks - they send you a free upgrade kit (disc which is Pro 2006 version (not a fuull version but enogh to get the data over) then you load that on your old machine transfer your data to that then copy that again - then load into Pro 2008 - worked fine for us - have come across a hiccup with VAT - but however I guess we are going to have to give in and phone them after the Bank holiday........apart from that everything was fine.

be brave and phone 'em - tech support was helpful.

SOURCE: updating Quickbooks on Vista OS

There are a couple of things going on here.
First, and most important, Qb 2005 was not designed to run on Vista. Vista was barley even in the planning stages when 2005 was programmed. Vista will probably run it, but in a compatability mode ( pretending to be an older version of Windows), but updating the program will be nightmarish at best because the updates are pointing to files that are either 1) no longer used by Windows or 2) the versions and functionality of the files has changed.
My best advice- restore the backup on an XP box, or get a later version of QuickBooks that will run on Vista.

SOURCE: Quickbooks pro 2005, Multi license

This can be a frustrating situation, and there may be more than one cause. Network permissions, user permissions, version and release of the QuickBooks program....all of these can play into this.
One suggestion would be to download the manual update from the QuickBooks support website. Save the file to a disk or a jump/flash drive, then run the update on all of the systems. You may have to open the task manager ( ctrl + alt+delete) go to the processes tab and end process on anything that begins QB.....
If they are all on the same release ( check by having the program open and do ctrl+1 on the keyboard, in the info screen it should have the version and an r number) the issues may lie with permissions, or even a stuck image file. Make sure the c: drive on the server, and the QuickNooks folders are fully shared, and that anypne logged into windows is a power user or higher.

I have no sounds and when I open the control panel, there's that i have no sound device. I installed the driver, when it didnt work I reinstalled it, but nothing changed. what can I do?


  • Hi, the best thing to do at this point is perform a "System Restore." Try to remember the exact "Date" before the problem occur, or once you start the System Restore, ("pick a date going back more than 5 days"), check the dates and see if any of the dates seem familiar. Pick the closest date prior to the "Sound going out!" Type: in the "Start Search Window" from the start menu: system restore; scroll to find, and open. Follow all the instructions carefully, and be very "patient," you cannot use the computer in any way during the "system restore" even after the computer "Restart" the system restore is still running to "fix the problem." When the process is finish the computer will let you know if the restore was successful or not? Do what is suggested if the restore didn't fix it." "Hope it works out for you; if so rating the help will let me know, thanks."
