QuickBooks from 2001 will probably have serious compatibility issues unless your operating system is from 2001 as well.
If you have a new operating system (Windows Vista onwards) you may be able to install and run QB in compatibility mode. I have it running on Vista Professional.
Right click on the executable and select Run in Compatibility Mode and then select Windows XP from the options.
If you do not have the option to run in Compatibility Mode, you will need to update QuickBooks, or your OS or best of all, both.
If you have no luck running in CM, uninstall the program, reboot and then install the program from the disc by using the same compatibility technique. You will need to disable autorun if the program tries to install itself when you put the disc in the drive
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.
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
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.
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.
