Question about Intuit QuickBooks Premier: Accountant Edition 2003 (275957) for PC
I've been using QBks Premier Accountant 2003 sucessfully since it came out. I have faithfully backed up my data but I cannot get to it because my laptop died and the program will not load onto my new laptop even though both computers are Windows XP. I get Error #0x80040707 - problem loading registration support (QBINSTAL.DLL) and #0x80040702 - failed to load dll: QBINSTAL.
Is there anything I can do to get my new laptop to run my existing version of Quickbooks?

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.

SOURCE: updating Quickbooks on Vista OS
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.

There may be more than one issue going on here. In some cases, going to a version that is several versions later requires a stepped upgrade. 2003 to 2004, 2004 to 2006, then to 2009. There may also be data damage existing in the 2003 file that will prevent an upgrade, until it is resolved in 2003.
Intuit used to have a policy that it would have you send in a copy of the data file and would convert it for free if you were going to the latest version.
If you are still unable to resolve this, let me know.

Update your Quickbooks, run reboot.bat, restart your computer and then restart Quickbooks
