Question about Intuit QuickBooks: Pro 2005 for PC

1 Answer

QuickBooks has experienced an error on startup

I deleted some programs to free up space yesterday, because I installed the MIcrosoft office home and student 2007. Nothing should have affected my QuickBooks Pro 2005. Today I can't open it. Get an error box that says "Quickbooks has experienced an error on startup. You can use the repair feature to fix problems that may be preventing QuickBooks from starting." So where is the "REPAIR FEATURE"?? Is it attainable without QuickBooks being open? Someone suggest holding down the control key while trying to open program. Didn't work. Any help appreciated!! I'm kinda freaking out here.

Re: QuickBooks has experienced an error on startup

Step one is run scandisk. If you have a cross linked or corrupted file it will sort that out automactically. Step 2 is to google "where is the quickbooks repair feature".....odds are someone has used it before. Step your Quickbooks database (in at least two places) and delete and reinstall Quickbooks if all else fails.

Cannot load valid copy of Office 2003, Adobe 7.0 pro, quickbooks

If it is a "new" computer, and Office 2003 and Adobe 7.0 Professional came "pre-installed" on your computer, then take everything back to where you bought the computer, and get them to assist you. If they are at all a "responsible" retailer, they will support the products that they have sold to you.

If you have your own copy of Office 2003, and you are trying to install it, then start Vista's "Program Compatibility Wizard", and select that you want to install an "XP" program, and select the CD-ROM as the "source" for the software that you want to install.

Vista will wrap an "envelope" around Office 2003, to emulate a Windows XP environment.

Same for Quickbooks and for Adobe software.

Error on Startup for Quickbooks Pro 2005

You can find the repair feature in the control panel add/remove programs window.
Open your control panel, click on add/remove programs, scroll down to QuickBooks and click remove (it won't you will be prompted to either repair or remove). Have you disk handy in case it prompts you for it.

It means that you do not have enough unused disk space on your computer to install Microsoft Office 2007. You'll probably need to uninstall more applications but try using something like ccleaner to help you free up disk space
