If you feel that "Z:" has moved to "E:," you can move it back by right clicking on the My Computer icon -> Manage.

Then double click Disk Management. This will bring up the list of disks and you can right click on your E: drive and click "Change Drive Letter and Paths."

If it does not look like it has just moved, was Z: a physical drive or was it just mapped? You may need to remap it.

Hope this helps - flub

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


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.

Error message 1324. The path My Pictures contains an invalid character. Version 2.5.2.36 Can I remove? Can I update so my Quickbooks program can update? Need help please!


There are 3 possible reasons why you are getting this error message:

1. An invalid character in QuickBooks installation path.
2. An incorrect path setting in the Windows registry.
3.Insufficient hard drive space available to install the QuickBooks program.

To fix this problem, please do the following:
  1. Restart your computer, and reinstall QuickBooks.
  2. Confirm that at least 2.5 GB of disk space is available for installing QuickBooks (Quickbooks 2010 requires 1.5GB of disk space):
    1. Double-click the Computer (for Windows 7 or Vista) or My Computer (for Windows XP) icon on your Windows desktop.
    2. Note the amount of free space shown in the window next to the drive letter where QuickBooks is being installed:
      • If the amount of free space is less than 1 GB, free up disk space before installing QuickBooks or install QuickBooks on a different drive.
      • If the amount of free space is greater than 1 GB, proceed with step 2.
  3. Remove invalid characters from the QuickBooks installation path:
    1. Right-click the Windows Start button and select Explore.
    2. Navigate to the path shown in the error:
      • If there are non-alphanumeric characters in the name of any folder in the installation path, right-click the folder and select Rename to remove them, and then reinstall QuickBooks.
      • If there are only alphanumeric characters in the installation path, proceed with step 3.
  4. Create a new user in Windows to rewrite any Windows registry settings that may be causing the error and log in as that user to install QuickBooks.
Note: You must be logged in as a Windows administrator or as a member of the Administrator group to add a new user.
If this solution does not resolve the issue, you can read discussions and post messages and questions relating to your issue on the Intuit QuickBooks Community site for free, or you can contact a technical support agent for additional guidance. Fees may apply.

Hello! My daugther has a Compaq Presario. The computer keeps freezing. After I reinstalled back up disk everything seems fine except with the Hitachi SATA Disk Device. The computer says Drive0:Hitachi...


It could be that the disk-drive is "dying" -- when Windows tries to write to a "bad" spot on the disk, it will "freeze" until the write is "successful" -- usually, this is only milli-seconds, which you may not have noticed. If the disk-drive cannot write the data, it will "fail". Replace the disk-drive.
If it still is under warranty from Hitachi, they should replace it, at minimal cost.

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!

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.

My quickbooks pro 2007 won't do the back-up at all


If you have the original cd you may need it to restore some defective, altered or missing files. You can begin by going into Control Panel, Add/Remove (assuming XP) and Selecting Quickbooks. If you see an option to repair the program, select it and proceed.
Alternative option is to reinstall the CD and launch the setup. It will ask you is you want to repair the installation. Agree to this choice and proceed.
Once the repair is complete, restart the program and see if the problem is rectified. Good luck.

Quickbooks Pro-restoring a back up from a previous version 2005


If is any help - we have just had the same problem.......had version 5 (very old) of QB
changed computer to Vista and would not work so had to buy Pro 208 for Vista . We really had to get in touch with Quickbooks - they send you a free upgrade kit (disc which is Pro 2006 version (not a fuull version but enogh to get the data over) then you load that on your old machine transfer your data to that then copy that again - then load into Pro 2008 - worked fine for us - have come across a hiccup with VAT - but however I guess we are going to have to give in and phone them after the Bank holiday........apart from that everything was fine.

be brave and phone 'em - tech support was helpful.
