Question about Peachtree Software Peachtree Complete Accounting 2004
I went to get into Peachtree First accounting 2004. Do this many times a week. Today it gave me a message Currently another user has this peachtree company open on this comnputer. Before you or any other user can start Peachtree the other user must exit. There are NO other users on my computer. I shut it down, logged off and on again, and did a system restore to windows Vista. Nothing is working, please help
From quoted information from Peachtree's KB system:
Go to Task Manager by pressing the CTRL+ALT+DEL keys and on the Processes tab look for W32MKDE.EXE, click to highlight and choose End Task. If W32MKDE.EXE is not shown, close Task Manager.
Go to Start, Find or Search for conn*.* Be sure you are searching the DATAPATH for these files.
Select all connco and conndp files from your datapath and choose delete.
Since you are using Peachtree First R2004, you will then need to go to Start, Run, and type in PFA110.INI and hit enter. This will open it in Notepad.
Scroll down to the [Options] section and look for the line ShowStartup=No, change this to read ShowStartup=Yes.
Look for the line LastCompanyOpen=[company name] where [company name] would be your last company opened company name. Delete the FULL company name after the equal sign.
Look for the line LastCompanyOpenShort=[company short name] where [company short name] would be your last company opened Folder Name. Delete the company folder name after the equal sign.
Select File from the menu bar and choose Save. Close the ini file.
Open Peachtree and select one of the sample companies. After the sample company opens, select File, Open Company and open your company data.

Looks like you are using illegal program or... someone has somehow stolen your software key before you noticed. If you are not using this software on your another computer, try to contact software creators http://www.peachtree.com/company/contactus/
and explain the situation

I've seen this before with peachtree. What happens every time you work on an accounting file peachtree locks the contents of the file. Occasionally the software never gets the chance to unlock it. This can happen if the computer shuts down unexpectedly, a file gets corrupted etc. You should find in your installation depending on the version a scan utility that can scan your accounting main file and see if there are problems and correct them. If not next try a re-install of peachtree and run the updates and try opening the file. Finally if not it is time to restore an update you have prior to the problem.

That file is the one that stores the customer information - it's stored on something like C: Users\ name \AppData \Local \program name\ settings \ Permiss.dat. That file will be there whatever the original install place of the program is. You are getting this message because the restore process corruped or deleted the file. The only way to fix that is to perform a real reinstall: run the uninstaller, reboot, manually search all Peachtree related files and folders from the original install places and C:\Users and permanently delete them, reboot again then install and run a registry cleaner like http://www.eusing.com/free_registry_cleaner/registry_cleaner.htm reboot once more and then reinstall the program again. You will know that the process was successful if you will be asked to insert the key during the process.
