    I just got a new Dell computer which has Windows Vista. I have Quickbooks Pro 2001 and the 2003 upgrade that I want to use. My backup of my company information is on Quickbooks Pro 2003. If I buy a newer version of Quickbooks Pro that is compatible with Vista, can I restore my company information in the newer version?



    Thank you for your time and help-if you can!

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.

Opening QuickBooks Pro 2009


Sounds like your re-installation of QB did not update your registry files properly.

I would suggest:
1) make a backup of your data
2) uninstalling QB
3) delete the QB installation folder entirely
4) re-install QB
5) restore your data

If this doesn't work, I can provide "remote desktop support" to try a more comprehensive approach.

Error message Library not registered


I got the message "Line 25: Library not registered" after uninstalling QuickBooks Pro 2009 and trying to run my old version of QB Pro 2006.

(I had installed 2009 version to upgrade my QB2006 Pro version but got into problems with multicurrency support not being supported in the Canadian QB Pro 2009.)

Fix is VERY easy and I think it applies to anyone trying to run an older version of QB Pro after uninstalling a newer version.

Fix is to find the file "reboot.bat" located in the program files associated with the older QB version.
In my case it was found in "C:/Program Files\Intuit\QuickBooks Pro" folder.
Just double click on the file to run it. This file tells the system where parts of the QB program are located including the DLL libraries it needs. After running this file you should be able to run your old QB version OK. No rebooting necessary.

Unable to load post script fonts in windows-xp


Well postscript fonts are vector outline fonts, so they contain instructions about the building of their outlines and curves and such. Hence two files are required to use a postscript font under Windows.

As to how to install these fonts, well
  1. Click Start | Settings | Control Panel.
  2. Double-click on the Fonts folder.
  3. Choose File | Install New Font.
  4. In the Folders menu, navigate to the folder containing the fonts that you wish to install. A list of available fonts will appear in the List of Fonts window.
  5. Click on the font you wish to install or use the "Select All" button to install all fonts in the List of Fonts.
  6. Click on OK.
Please keep in mind:
  1. If you are installing fonts from a CD be sure the 'Add without copying files' box is NOT checked; unless the fonts are on a located somewhere (such as a network) which you will have access to at all times.
  2. Postscript fonts have two files: PFB (printer font binary has outlines that control how the font looks) and PFM (printer font metrics has information about font spacing). Be sure you have both font files.
  3. If you currently have or previously had Adobe Type Manager Deluxe 4.0, 4.1, or 4.1.1 installed you may need the Adobe Deluxe Updater in order to properly use your Postscript fonts under Windows XP. Get it from Adobe.
Hope this helped. Let me know and if yes please rate me:)
