Question about Intuit QuickBooks Pro 2001 for PC

2 Answers

I am having problems with my QuickBooks Pro 2001 program. It will not update and it will not recognize the drives for a restore.

The program cannot start the update module, something about an active x control. When I try to restore, it won't recognize the drive for the flash drive, even though I done it before.

To install the Manual update:

  1. Click the link qbwebpatch.exe above.
  2. In the File Download window, click Save.
  3. In the Save As window, choose the location to save the update file.
  4. If QuickBooks is open, close it.
  5. Locate and double-click the downloaded qbwebpatch.exe file. If you have difficulty finding the file on your computer, see "Find a file on a computer that is running Windows."
  6. When the installation is complete, restart your computer.
  7. Open QuickBooks, and then check the current program release.
  • Press F2 to open the Product Information window.
  • The first line in this window displays the QuickBooks 2013 version followed by the release number (for example, QuickBooks Premier 2013 Release R12P). If the release number contains R12, then you have successfully installed the latest release.
  • Click OK to close the window.
  • If using QuickBooks in a multi-user environment, follow the above steps on the other systems. Once each machine has the update, open QuickBooks and log in to the company file as normal.

We would need to know the actual error message it is giving. Sometimes you are dealing with damaged installs, and running Reboot.bat from the program folder will fix it.

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 2007- Not Responding

It's likely a problem with the PDF Converter provided by Intuit. Here are the instructions to fix the problem:

http://support.quickbooks.intuit.com/support/pages/knowledgebasearticle/1007856

If that does not fix your problem, take a look at turning User Account Controls either ON or OFF -

  1. From the Windows Start menu, choose Control Panel.
  2. Double-click User Accounts, and then click Turn User Account Control on or off. Click Continue if asked for permission to continue.
  3. Select the checkbox Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer and click OK. Close Control Panel.
  4. Restart your computer

Please let me know if this has been helpful or if there is anything else I can do. Thank you.

uninstall the software 100% reboot the machine so the information obtained in ram is not going to interfere with new installation. using your original cdrom that came with the kit, install your quick books 2007 software register it with the original code and product id sequence numbers. when it tries to run theirs 3 things happening now. the program in initializing it;s visual c run time libraries. and well as calling the dynamically loaded libraries from the windows directory and other locations. if a program was removed that used these files and it was uninstalled with the files then it is possible you will have to install qb from scratch and use the qbw or quick books workspace file to run your company files afterwords. backup the qbw files encase of problems. this is often tell take sings of viral or system melware. then scan with your virus software. and see if anything was crashing the program. other options involve system files missing that are used. good luck.

When I start Quick Books Pro 2005 that has been working fine for years, it opens with only a small portion of the top of the page showing and the page cannot be moved up the screen and the ENLARGE button...


It sounds as though the program may be damaged. The first thing I would do is reinstall the software. There is a possibility that your windows has received an update, or their has been an update to Internet Explorer. Since the QuickBooks program uses Internet Explorer to display various portions of the program, if you did receive an update it may be that the code for the Qb 2005 can no longer handle the later versions of IE.
If reinstalling does not correct the issue, you can also try right-clicking the QB icon on the task bar and choosing Windows, Cascade. There may be an open window in the software that has moved off the side of the screen.
I would seriously suggest updating the software as soon as you can, as the obsolete code from the older version can do little but lead to problems down the road.

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.

How can i make quickbooks 2005 run on a vista laptop?


Here is how to load and activate Quickbooks 2005 on Vista...

First of all, if you already have an activated copy of QuickBooks 2005 on another computer open it and go to "help" "my license information" and print this out so you have the details needed for activating your reinstalled copy (you don't need a fresh activation key and you may have trouble getting one as QuickBooks 2005 is no longer supported by Intuit).

On your new Vista computer, insert the QuickBooks CD but cancel any program install windows that pop up. Go to my computer and find setup.exe on the CD, right click and select the option to "run as administrator"

Once installed, navigate to the QuickBooks folder on your hard drive (typically C:\Program Files\Intuit\QuickBooks) right click on QB32.exe and on the compatibility tab select both Disable visual themes" and "run as adminstrator". Now open this file to run QuickBooks and select "file" "Update QuickBooks" to download and install all updates. QuickBooks will not work properly until you have downloaded the updates, closed and reopened the program.

I had problems with activation but I got around this by unplugging my network cable so that I had no internet connection. If you run QuickBooks without an internet connection, when the screen pops up asking you to "activate" click next and the screen to enter your license details will appear. enter your details (printed out from your previous installation) and you are done. You can restore the internet connection and use QuickBooks 2005 normally.

Good luck!

Problem restoring Data


You should be able to locate your original files and make a backup copy to a neutral location. Once you do that, go to Control Panel and uninstall all versions of Quickbooks you see listed. Restart, reinstall 2002 or 2004, which ever you have the full install for, and then put a copy of your original files back in the designated folder that Quickbooks uses. You should be able to open 2002 now, and continue with 2004 upgrade. Let me know if you have trouble finding your origianl QB files and I can help you out with that too.

Opening quickbooks


Run a system restore and restore your computer to a time before you did the windows update. If the update caused QB not to open, the restore will remove the update from your computer. To access system restore, click on start, programs, accessories, system tools, system restore...and follow the onscreen instructions.

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.

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.
