Question about Peachtree Software Peachtree Complete Accounting 2004

9 Answers

I cannot open the company from any of the workstations.

I use a peer to peer network. I lost all data on host hard drive and had to reformat it. After re-installing all the software, including Peachtree Complete 2007 multi-user, I have not been able to open the "company" from any workstation in the network. OS is Windows XP Professional. The Peachtree company opens fine on the host computer. There are two errors that pop-up when I try to open from any of the workstations:

1. If I am "not" logged in on Peachtree on the host computer the error note from a workstation is: Another user is using the feature I am trying to use.... (note: not exact wording)

2. When I'm logged-in on Peachtree on the host computer the error note from a workstation is: "Not a Valid Peachtree Company"

Workstations are properly connecting to the host computer. Datapath is pointing to host default and is accessible. Removed and re-installed Peachtree on everything. Installed latest updates: SR6. Verified permissions and drive mapping. Did everything recommended in Peachtree.com knowledgebase support. I can connect to other devices on the network, i.e. printers. I don't have a service support program with Peachtree.

Need help, Please.

    I restored data from a backup prior to the problem. I still have the same problem. I believe my problem is with the Peachtree software and not the hard drive; plus I don't have a recovery disc for the hard drive.

  • Tony Mar 05, 2009

    After re-installing all the software I created a new network. And to eliminate possibilities, a few days later I created a second new network. All workstations are pointing to the correct network.

  • Tony Mar 05, 2009

    Peachtree allows users on workstations to log-in even if nobody is logged in to Peachtree on the host computer. The only requirement is that the host computer must be turned on and a user logged-in to the computer (not Peachtree).

    Logging-in to Peachtree from a workstation only happens after the workstation has linked to the company on the host computer. Which is my problem, I cannot get the workstation to link to the company data files.

  • Tony Mar 05, 2009

    ACDR: I have a multi-user license from Peachtree. However, please explain what is "crack"?

  • Tony Mar 05, 2009

    I have re-installed the Peachtree software at least 4 times on all computers in the network. And yes, after every re-installation I download and installed the latest updates. In this case SR6.

  • Tony Mar 05, 2009

    At this point I'm willing to do anything. I will re-install Peachtree once again.

  • Tony Mar 05, 2009

    I just did a search and there is no PPAM140.ini file in my computer.

  • Tony Mar 05, 2009

    Thanks! But I don't have a support plan with Peachtree. I called but they wouldn't help unless I purchase the plan.

  • Tony Mar 05, 2009

    Went to "My Computer", did a "My Computer" search for file PPAM140.INI and again, did not find this file.

  • Tony Mar 05, 2009

    Re-checked, permissions are ok.

  • Tony Mar 05, 2009

    I am using Peachtree version: Peachtree Complete Accounting 2007 (SR-6)

  • Tony Mar 05, 2009

    Don't forget about me. Please help!

  • Tony Mar 05, 2009

    I like to thank everybody for their help, but I found the answer to my problem in Peachtree online support site called "Peachtree Accounting Community", under "cannot open file z:\company.dat



    Even though I checked and re-checked permissions and folder sharing never occurred to me to select the box in folder sharing that "Allow network users to change my files". I only checked the box "Share this folder on the Network".



    What got me to this site was my curiosity with PPAM140.INI and why it was not in my files. I did a google search and there it was.



    Can I get a refund? Just kidding! Thanks for all the advise.



    Tony

  • Tony Mar 05, 2009

    I found the answer somewhere else, but I have to thank you for leading me to the answer.

Check to make sure that the other computers are in a group that is allowed to access files on the host computer. To do this go to the host computer and make sure that the permissions are set correctly.

Hello,

Have you verified that when you reinstalled Peachtree to the computer, you have also installed any relavent updates which may have been installed After you did the original installation?

Often, regular updates can update the database also, which is why they ask you to log out all users before Proceeding. If you have a newer version of the database than the software is expecting (due to no updates), then the software will not be able to open the database, and could easily spring up the problems you are having here.

    OK, if you go to your windows folder, check the PPAM140.INI file for the path to the Peachtree data files. At least, it must be X:\Company - you cannot map directly to the folder where the data resides, you have to be one level up from that.

  • Jay Selway

    RE:"1. If I am "not" logged in on Peachtree on the host computer the
    error note from a workstation is: Another user is using the feature I
    am trying to use...."

    A: that may be normal , you need to log in to access to a database.

    RE: 2. When I'm logged-in on Peachtree on the host computer the error note from a workstation is: "Not a Valid Peachtree Company"

    A:

    1 you are not logging in as correct user on host computer, or you are using wrong login on workstation.

    Verify login information from host and terminals.

    2 you have delete your company name from company list.

    Ensure that the name you are opening after login is the good compny name for your database. Sometimes there are similar company names stored from the past.
    For example if your company is called 'Datainc' you may have saved a similar name like 'data inc' or 'the datainc' in the past, this can also lead to this kind of problem.

    3 your data file is corrupted.

    In this case reinstall the latest backup after trying to save a backup of current data file, in this case you usually have data loss.

Quickbooks error 3371


When you register or open QuickBooks, you see one of these error messages:
  • Could not initialize license properties. Error 3371: QuickBooks could not load the license data. This may be caused by missing or damaged files.
  • Could not initialize license properties. [Error 3371, Status Code -11118] QuickBooks could not load the license data. This may be caused by missing or damaged files.
  • Could not initialize license properties. [Error: 3371, Status Code -1] QuickBooks could not load the license data. This may be caused by missing or damaged files.
Important: This issue can occur if your product is hosted by Right Networks and you access QuickBooks with WebConnect and then select to open the file without saving. If you use QuickBooks Enterprise and your product is hosted by Right Networks, you must save the file and then import it.

How to fix it:

Before proceeding, ensure that your copy of Microsoft Windows is up to date.
If the latest Windows updates are not installed, the QuickBooks installation can fail or become damaged. To install the latest updates in Windows, click the Windows Start or Logo button, choose All Programs > Windows Update. Once started be sure to install any updates marked critical.
You may need to re-install your software. Have your license number and product number for your version of QuickBooks ready.

Try these steps in the order shown. If the first one fixes the problem, you do not need to do the other steps.

Re-create damaged EntitlementDataStore.ecml
  1. Close QuickBooks if it's open.
  2. Open the entitlement data folder for your operating system and version of QuickBooks.
    1. On your keyboard, press Windows + R to open the Run window.
    2. Enter (or copy and paste) the following information, and then press Enter
      • QuickBooks 2014 and Enterprise 14.0: C:\ProgramData\Intuit\Entitlement Client\v8
      • QuickBooks 2013 and Enterprise 13.0: C:\ProgramData\Intuit\Entitlement Client\v8
      • QuickBooks 2012 and Enterprise 12.0: C:\ProgramData\Intuit\Entitlement Client\v6.0
      • QuickBooks 2011 and Enterprise 11.0: C:\ProgramData\Intuit\Entitlement Client\v6.0
      • QuickBooks 2010 and Enterprise 10.0 : C:\ProgramData\Intuit\Entitlement Client\v6.0
      • QuickBooks 2009 and Enterprise 9.0: C:\ProgramData\Intuit\Entitlement Client\v5
      • QuickBooks 2008 and Enterprise 8.0: C:\ProgramData\Intuit\Entitlement Client\v5
      • QuickBooks 2007 and Enterprise 7.0: C:\ProgramData\Intuit\Entitlement Client\v3
  3. Right-click the EntitlementDataStore.ecml file and select Delete.
  4. Click Yes to confirm you want to delete the file.
  5. Open QuickBooks, open your company file, and follow the instructions to register the application.

I had to reinstall Windows Vista Home Basic 32 bit and then Drivers and Utilities on my Vostro 1500 and now can not find Microsoft Office, Word, Excel ect. I am very limited on what I know to do and it...


They are gone ... when you reinstalled the software .(Vista) .. you should have seen a screen that said Windows will now reformat your drive ... all data will be lost ... are you sure you want to proceed? You clicked YES and the drive was reformatted. When it was reformatted, everything was lost.

If you have the Office license, you can reinstall the software. If you don't have the license, you will have to get new.

If you are interested ... there is a teriffic program called Open Office that does essentially the same as the Microsoft product. It is free to look at and free to use ... find it here: http://download.openoffice.org/

They will ask you for money but there is no FEE to use the program, ever. If you want to pay them somethning, that will be appreciated.

I am getting error codes 6129,0 and 6073, 816 on my quickbooks 2008. What can I do to open the company?


This error can occur when:
  • Data is converted or restored over a network.
  • Several computers are acting as host for the QuickBooks data file.
  • QuickBooks is unable to communicate with the server.
  • There is data damage in your company file.

If the error occurred when you were restoring a company file from a backup or updating a company file to a newer version of QuickBooks over a network:
  1. Copy the backup file (.qbb file extension) or the company file you want to update (.qbw file extension) to a local hard drive.
  2. Restore the backup or update the company file.
  3. Copy the restored or updated company file back to its original location.

If the error occurred when you were trying to open and use a company file:
  1. Update QuickBooks to the most current release on all computers that open the company file.
  2. Close QuickBooks on all the computers with access to this company file.
  3. On the computer you select to host the company file, switch to single-user mode, and then back to multi-user mode:
    1. Open QuickBooks and open the company file.
    2. Choose File > Switch to Single-user Mode.
    3. Choose File > Utilities > Stop Hosting Multi-User Access.
    4. Choose File > Switch to Multi-user Mode.
    5. Choose File > Close Company to close the company file.
  4. On all other computers that will use the company file, stop hosting multi-user access :
    1. Press and hold Ctrl while you open the QuickBooks program and continue pressing Ctrl until QuickBooks opens completely. This opens QuickBooks without opening a company file.
    2. Choose File > Utilities >Stop Hosting Multi-User Access. If that option doesn't appear, the computer is not hosting and no further action is necessary.
    3. Repeat steps 4.a and 4.b for each computer other than the host computer.
  5. Configure the QuickBooks server for multi-user access:
    1. Click the Windows Start button and choose All Programs > QuickBooks > QuickBooks Database Server Manager.
    2. Click the Scan Folders tab.
    3. Click the Add Folder button, select the folder that contains your QuickBooks company file, and click OK. Repeat this step if necessary to add additional company file folders.
    4. Click the Scan button to begin scanning. After the scan is finished, the company files in the scanned folders are configured for multi-user access.
  6. Open the company file in QuickBooks. If you receive the same error message, refer to Settings required for firewalls to make sure your firewall is properly configured to allow QuickBooks access to your company file.
  7. Open the company file in QuickBooks. If you receive the same error message, open a different company file or a sample company file located in one of the folders you scanned with the Database Server Manager.
    • If no company file will open, reboot the host computer and try again.
    • If other company files open without error, the company file generating the error message may be damaged. For more information refer to Verifying and rebuilding QuickBooks company data.

I'm facing major problem of active desktop recovery.Also I'm unable to restore my active desktop.


If all fails, then the last resort would be Reformat Your Computer. Save Everything. When you do a Reformat, all data is lost.
I found this on the web. You can click on the link to see it more in view.
http://www.ehow.com/how_5039946_reformat-windows-vista-computer.html
Step 1 ATTENTION!

Reformatting a computer will reset it to the factor image, all data must be backed up or it WILL be lost. There are several reasons to reformat a hard drive. A few reasons include but are not limited to: driver issues, virus, cleaning up, getting rid of the computer, etc.

Step 2 Recovery Disk Creator
Every new windows vista owner should know that the new computers are not supplied with recovery disks anymore. The manufacturer allows the user to create one set of disks upon the purchase of a new machine. It is important to create the disks early as driver issues and viruses may arise. In order to create recovery disks on windows vista you want to click on the start menu. Next, type in recovery in the Start Search option area. Next, click on recovery disk creation and follow the process. It will require that you have about 3 dvds or about 7 cds to create the recovery disks.
REFORMATING HARD DRIVE!

Once the recovery disks have been made reformatting windows vista is quite simple. Insert the recovery disks into the cd/dvd tray on the machine. You are now going to want to turn the computer off. When the computer has turned off, go ahead and turn it back on. A screen should pop up asking you whether you want to boot from Hard Drive or Disk. Choose the disk option. After you make it this far it is a downhill process. Next you follow the on-screen instruction make sure you reformat the machine, not recover it.

Good Luck :0)

Workstation not updating


The two quickbooks computers are not looking at the same data file. When you link 2 systems like you are describing, one holds the company file and the other accesses it on the first computers drive.

open Quickbooks on the main workstation and do control + 1 on the keyboard. This will open the product info window ( may also be accessed with F2). Look at the file location. It should say C:\....

Then do the same on the second system. If it also says C:\, it is looking at a file on it's own harddrive. It will need to be remapped to the network file location.

Once they are properly mapped, you will not need to restore a backup, as any changes in the file will be seen by both.

Quick books error code(-6010, -100 ) Occasionally I will not be able to access my Quickbooks file. I receive error code -6010,-100. Rebooting the computer solves the problem, but this is not an acceptable...


Solution 1: For a standalone PC install of QuickBooks
  1. Choose File > Utilities > Stop Hosting Multi-User Access.

Solution 2: Rename the .nd file associated with the company data file:
  1. Search the computer for files with extension .nd (Example: *.nd).
  2. Locate the .nd files with the name of the company having trouble opening.
  3. Right-click the .nd file, click rename and type old at the end ( for example, company.nd would become company .nd.old).
  4. Open QuickBooks.

Solution 3: If you are running NOD32 Antivirus Software with Internet Monitor (IMON)
  1. On the computer where the QuickBooks data is stored, find the NOD32 program.
  2. Disable IMON functionality.
  3. Reboot the computer.

Solution 4: Run reboot.bat
