Once you install intuit on your new pc or new harddrive open the program. insert the dvd disc. go to wherever you open files. select the drive with the dvd instead of the C drive. you should see the files. click on one and the program should open it. the program doesn't care if the files are on the C drive, D drive or U drive. it just needs a file with the right format and file extension.

uninstall the software 100% reboot the machine so the information obtained in ram is not going to interfere with new installation. using your original cdrom that came with the kit, install your quick books 2007 software register it with the original code and product id sequence numbers. when it tries to run theirs 3 things happening now. the program in initializing it;s visual c run time libraries. and well as calling the dynamically loaded libraries from the windows directory and other locations. if a program was removed that used these files and it was uninstalled with the files then it is possible you will have to install qb from scratch and use the qbw or quick books workspace file to run your company files afterwords. backup the qbw files encase of problems. this is often tell take sings of viral or system melware. then scan with your virus software. and see if anything was crashing the program. other options involve system files missing that are used. good luck.
PLEASE REMEMBER THERE SHOULD NOT BE ANY PROBLEM IN OPENING A QB PRO 2008 COMPANY FILE IN PREMIER 2008. THERE SHOULD BE SOME OTHER REASON TO IT .

So long as you have a valid, REGISTERED copy of QBPRO, this should be no problem... You'll need the phone number and ZIP code of the person or entity under which you entered the registration.
Install QB Pro 2008 on the new laptop, register it (you'll need an internet connection) and go ahead and click on help...update quickbooks and let it do it's thing.
Then (If you're using an XP machine...) COPY your intuit directory (usually located at C:\documents and settings\all users\shared doctuments\intuit) over to the new machine in the shared documents folder.
After you have copied the data, open QB Pro and choose "open an existing company", then navigate to where you placed your intuit files and open the company in question.
I would not open up the company file in 2009. Open your 2003 Quickbooks, make a backup and then restore the back up in 2009. If you do run into problems you might want to upgrade into 2006 and then to 2009. (you will need to find someone who can do this for you if you don't have a 2006 version. I can help you with that if you need it
There are a couple of things going on here.
First, and most important, Qb 2005 was not designed to run on Vista. Vista was barley even in the planning stages when 2005 was programmed. Vista will probably run it, but in a compatability mode ( pretending to be an older version of Windows), but updating the program will be nightmarish at best because the updates are pointing to files that are either 1) no longer used by Windows or 2) the versions and functionality of the files has changed.
My best advice- restore the backup on an XP box, or get a later version of QuickBooks that will run on Vista.
QuickBooks Pro 2003 can run on Windows Vista. Right-click a shortcut to open Quickbooks (or qbw32.exe directly) and click on Properties. Select the Compatibility tab. Under Compatibility Mode, check the box and select Windows XP (Service Pack 2) from the list. Under privilege level, select "Run this program as an administrator." Select OK and everything will work.
