    I just upgraded to Windows 7. Installed Pro 2003 in XP compatibility mode. All works well except for the company navigator panel which remains blank.

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.

I installed Quickbooks regular 2006 last February on my PC which has Vista. I had the same error messages - but when I phoned up and spoke to support they told me that i needed to open the pC in safe mode and then open QB that way. I then had no more problems (until my computer crashed a few months ago) and I can't remember what to do. But it is possible!!! (unless they are just trying to sell the upgrades .

My installation went exactly the same way. I called Intuit and they said that 2003 pro is not Vista compatible and that I could up grade my version for the low low price of $179!

Version 2003 is not Vista compliant at all. When MS made Vista, it changed the manner in which data is handled by windows. The Qb 2003 program was not coded to work in that environment, and the company is not going to change the older programs to mak them Vista compliant.

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.

Quickbooks Pro 2007 has stopped working. when i


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.

I am using windows vista. now i want to install quick book 2005 but error exits please first install flash player 7. when i go to install flash player 7. it not support my operating system vista. pla guide...


You probably don't need to install version 7, i'd try installing the latest version instead.

There might also be a install patch on the intuit website or some kind of workaround.

If not it might just be easier to buy a new copy.

Error message when installing QuickBooks 2005 to new 64 bit compu


Hello, I found this on another web site intuit community. I tried this and it works. A couple of people said they had to run this each time they signed on but i have not had to.

Welcome to the community forums. One thing that I notice with your error log is that all the missing files are .dll files. I would suggest running Reboot.bat which re-registers the QuickBooks .dll files.
Do a search on your computer for reboot.bat (there is a seperate one for each version) and run the reboot.bat that corresponds to version of QuickBooks you are having a problem with.

It worked for me and I am so happy because as stated QB not longer supports 2005.

Cannot reinstall Quick Books on a new computer


If this is a new system, running Vista, there is your issue. 2005 was not designed yo operate on that system. You would need to have a later version of the program, such as 2009 to have Vista compatability.

Quickbooks 2003 won't run in vista


Quicbooks 2003 runs very well in vista. To know how to get it running, you need to have administrative rights and then you run as administrator the quickbooks icon on the desktop of vista. if you have a problem, please email me johndm1997@yahoo.com . I will be willing to assist in details.
