Question about Intuit QuickBooks: Pro 2005 for PC
I bought Quickbooks 2005 (not Pro) last year and installed it without a problem on my desktop. I have moved temporarily so I want to install it on my laptop so I can use it at my temporary home. Unfortunately every time I try to install it, it tells me to install Flash Player 5. I installed flash player 7 but still didn't work. went to circuit city, they installed flash player 9 then tried to install quickbooks, still won't work. No way past the steps which tell me to install flash player. When I hit "next" it acts like it is installing flash player then shows error msg 1603. Help!
Explore the QuickBooks 2005 CD, go into the QuickBooks folder and double click quickbooks.msi - this will install QuickBooks without checking for the old/outdated Flash Player 7.

Solution 1 (if you are installing QuickBooks)
Follow the steps in the Repair or reinstall .Net Framework article
Solution 2 (if you are updating QuickBooks)
Perform a Clean Install of QuickBooks and make sure to use a download of the program, and not a CD as the download will already be on the latest release.
