Question about ACCPAC Simply Accounting 2004 PRO (2120148) for PC
I used simply accounting 2004 pro in my computer running windows xp 32 bit, but when i use window vista 64 i can't install my simply anymore. it says "the version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you're running. contact the software publisher". is there any way to install it? thanx
Simply Accounting 2002 may not be fully compatible with Vista. The 2008 and 2009 programs are compatible with Vista. You may want to try installing outside of C:Program Files if possible and make sure you save your Simply Company files outside of this location.

I had the same problem but it was with Simply 2007 running on a Windows XP computer. One day it just said "username and password are incorrect" even though I had just used it the day before with the exact same username and password (I am the administrator). I Googled all kinds of solutions to try, and finally this one worked. I simply did a Windows "System Restore" to the previous day. Once I did that, Simply Accounting allowed me to log in again. Therefore it tells me that the problem is one of two things...either the Windows database engine...or with some sort of Windows Update or other program update that interfered with the login process. The likelyhood is that it's a Windows system file involved in the database engine that was corrupt.
If you don't have automatic System Restore setup on your Windows computer however, then you are out of luck. The only possible solution (I haven't tried it) is to copy all the Simply database files to another working computer that "hopefully" doesn't have the same corrupt system files, and try to install and run the program and database from that computer, it may work.

You will probably need to upgrade to a later version of the software that is windows 7 compatible.However try running the program executable (the main file that opens the program) in XP compatability mode, that sometimes works.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.
