SOURCE: QB Ed 2008, When I

Error -6177 means that the file is not accessible at the location QuickBooks is trying to open it.

The reasons for this may be:
1. The network is offline. Make sure that the directory is available or that you're still connected to the network.
2. The file was deleted by someone else available on the network.
3. If you have recently updated Quickbooks from an earlier version, then the cause may be a bug with the product itself. It has been reported by other users that they experience Error 6177 everytime they try to open a previously existing file.

Try the following link. Might help:

what file are you trying to open? adobe reader only opens documents in pdf and adobe format. when opening a program, right click then choose "open with" option, and select the appropriate program to open the file with. most of them open with internet explorer or ms word.

This looks like a problem with and HP printer. Uninstall the printer and reinstall it.

Possibly use a driver only download from the web (all in one drivers sometimes cause problems and have conflicts with other programs.

Transferring DVD designs to USB stick for my Husqvarna Designer 1


First you need your 4D software installed on your computer (or which ever version you are using). Insert the DVD into your drive. Then open your embroidery program and then click File and Open. When the new window opens, search for your DVD drive then find the embroidery you want and click Open. The embroidery yoiu chose should open in your embroidery program with the hoop displayed on the screen. Then save the embroidery under a new name in your embroidery design folder on your computer. Then insert your USB into your computer, Open Disk Manager and Read your USB. Then click on one of the empty squares and then click File then Open. In the new window find the embroidery file you saved under a new name on your computer and choose it. It should show up in the empty square you clicked on. Then Write to your USB. Now you are ready to move your USB to your machine and the embroidery should be there. Hope this helps. Good luck.

The parameter incorrect


The parameter is incorrect

Symptoms:
- Synching with Outlook.
- Error message: 'The parameter is incorrect'.

Explanation:
Generally, this error message indicates that the configuration process has been cancelled at some point. Typically, this happens due to cancelling the setup process on the Outlook Folders tab. If you are on Exchange folder, this tab can take several minutes to populate.

Fix:
In order to correct the problem you are experiencing, you will need to delete or rename the .ini file and then reconfigure CompanionLink/DoubleLook. This file is typically found in one of two locations:

For CompanionLink:
c:\Program Files\CompanionLink\
c:\Documents and Settings\[Username]\Application Data\CompanionLink\CompanionLink

For DoubleLook:
c:\Program Files\DoubleLook\
c:\Documents and Settings\[Username]\Application Data\CompanionLink\DoubleLook

Please note that Application Data is a hidden folder and that the .ini file extension is hidden by default. Please see http://www.companionlink.com/support/howto/ht0017.html for an explanation of how to display all files.

Hope this helps

Hello There, I found this in their FAQ Guide. Hope this resolves your problems, I know it is a bit of a read. Good Luck!!

What is happening?

Double-clicking on a backup, portable company file, or a file with an extension other than .qbw, the following error occurs:
An error occurred when QuickBooks tried to create, open, or use the company file. Please try again. If the problem persists, contact Intuit Technical Support and provide them with the following error codes: (-6150,-1006).
Or, if you attempt to double-click the data file without QuickBooks open, the following error occurs:
There was an unexpected error reported while trying to run QuickBooks with company file "path location". Error code 80070057.
Note: More than one error message that includes the error code 80070057 exists. If this is not the exact wording of your error message please refer to one of these other documents:
Error: 80070057 parameter is incorrect" when clicking on a QBB, QBM, QBW, NT, or TLG file from a Google Search Timeline
Error: 80070057 parameter is incorrect" when clicking on a QBB, QBM, NT, or TLG file from a Google Search Timeline
Error: 80070057, the parameter is incorrect. There was an unexpected error reported while trying to run QuickBooks with company file [path and name]
Error: 80070057 the parameter is incorrect" and "You do not have sufficient permissions to delete files...
If your Error 80070057 is different than the ones displayed, perform a new Search.

Why is this happening:
QuickBooks cannot read the company file because the QuickBooks file extension was changed or is the wrong type (.qbm, .qbb, .qbx).
This error can also occur during conversion or creation of a backup or portable company file if QuickBooks detects data damage in the company file.
This error may possibly occur if the QuickBooks installation is damaged.
This error can also be caused by attempting to open the portable company file (.qbm) without having QuickBooks open.

How to fix the problem:
Verify that the file extension displays company name.qbw and not a shortcut.
Copy the company file, change the extension to .qbm, .qbb, or .qbx, and follow the appropriate steps to open a portable file, backup, or accountant's review.
If the error occurs during the conversion or creation of a backup or portable company file, run the Verify utility to check the file for data damage. If it finds damage, run the Rebuild utility.
Repair the QuickBooks installation.
Uninstall, and then reinstall QuickBooks.

Cannot open or copy - parameter is incorrect?


Are you using the same card reader for both memory cards? It's probably just your card reader. I had this problem before and it turned out to be my usb cable for my psp.

Cannot copy files Parameter Incorrect


most likely the issue is that your trying to copy files over 4gb to fat32 disks, and this causes the parameter incorrect -issue. Try formatting the drive your copying to ntfs, this can handle +4gb files.
