I am trying to install the program on my PC with Microsoft XP operating system, a pop-up window asked me to download the flash player 7 from the web first so the program can install it. I followed the instruction, but the same message window pops up everytime when the install try to proccess. I wonder how can I solve the problem. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, thank you so much!
I have Flash Player 9 as well and have been trying to open and it has been blocking me with Flash Player 7. Just found solution. On your computer you need to do this. Go to MY COMPUTER. Right click on CD with QuickBooks in it and click OPEN. Double click to open QBOOKS folder. View 'details'. Double click on the only thing in the folder that says QuickBooks (19,961KB Windows Installer Package). This will load the program without trying to load the Flash Player first. It works. Just did it.

Open the Program Compatibility troubleshooter by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then clickTroubleshooting. Under Programs, click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows.
Follow the instructions in the troubleshooter.
If you cannot install a program, insert the installation disc for the program and, using the troubleshooter, browse to the program's setup file, usually called Setup.exe, Install.exe, or something similar. The troubleshooter is not designed to work on programs that have an .msi file name extension.
You're several versions behind with your QB Pro, and also several versions behind with the Flash Player you're trying to install.
If you're reinstalling because you upgraded your operating system version, this is likely the root cause. QB 2005 is not compatible with Windows 7; neither is Flash 7.
While you may be able to install the program using XP Mode, that isn't the most reliable way of running it. I recommend avoiding uninstalling the .net framework files and "back versioning" as a way of getting around it, because it is likely to cause problems with other functions.
You may be best off to upgrade your Quickbooks version.
Here is how to load and activate Quickbooks 2005 on Vista...
First of all, if you already have an activated copy of QuickBooks 2005 on another computer open it and go to "help" "my license information" and print this out so you have the details needed for activating your reinstalled copy (you don't need a fresh activation key and you may have trouble getting one as QuickBooks 2005 is no longer supported by Intuit).
On your new Vista computer, insert the QuickBooks CD but cancel any program install windows that pop up. Go to my computer and find setup.exe on the CD, right click and select the option to "run as administrator"
Once installed, navigate to the QuickBooks folder on your hard drive (typically C:\Program Files\Intuit\QuickBooks) right click on QB32.exe and on the compatibility tab select both Disable visual themes" and "run as adminstrator". Now open this file to run QuickBooks and select "file" "Update QuickBooks" to download and install all updates. QuickBooks will not work properly until you have downloaded the updates, closed and reopened the program.
I had problems with activation but I got around this by unplugging my network cable so that I had no internet connection. If you run QuickBooks without an internet connection, when the screen pops up asking you to "activate" click next and the screen to enter your license details will appear. enter your details (printed out from your previous installation) and you are done. You can restore the internet connection and use QuickBooks 2005 normally.
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.
This usually indicates a bad registry in windows, where the admin accounts are damaged. You can try creating a new user with admin rights. If the problem persists, you will probably need to do a system recover on the laptop, setting it back to factory specifications.
Backup any data you want to save first.
This commonly means the Microsoft Installer settings for the program are damaged or missing. This is actually a fairly common occurance and can be a sympom of registry issues. Microsoft has an Installer cleanup tool that can be useful at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301. This usually resolves the issue. If you are still having problems, search the Quickbooks folder for a file called REBOOT.BAT. Run this file ( this re-registers the software with windows) then try the cleanup tool again.
This is often caused by a broken Microsoft Installler reference, or registry issues.
First, try searching the QuickBooks folder for a file called Reboot.bat. Once you locate it, run it.
Try to uninstall.
If that fails, Microsoft has an Installer Clean Up Tool you can download and run,
If all else fails, you may wish to contact an Intuit Pro Advisor in your area to see if they still have a copy of the 2005 disk to reinstall and uninstall with.
