Launch Quickbooks pro 2005 for first time with error

Installed QB Pro 2005 on a different laptop and when I tried to launch it the first time, an error message appears as follows:

Windows XP and Windows 2000 users must have Power Users or Administrator group rights in order to run QuickBooks. Please contact your system administrator about being granted those rights.

I am the Administrator user on this computer.

Please help.
Thank you!

This usually indicates a bad registry in windows, where the admin accounts are damaged. You can try creating a new user with admin rights. If the problem persists, you will probably need to do a system recover on the laptop, setting it back to factory specifications.
Backup any data you want to save first.

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.

Bank reconciliation locking up, printing locking up.


In your list of printers, you will have one installed by QB called "QuickBooks PDF Converter". Do your reconcile and when it seems to lock up, open your list of printers from the control panel and open this QB printer. There will be a document waiting to print (not sure why, it might be internal to QB). Select that document and hit the delete key. That should free QB up to continue (works for me). You may need to select it and press Delete two different times to actually remove it from the printer. Finally, because it is not easy to open up Printers every time, make a shortcut on your quick launch or desktop to the Printers applet.
