Question about PC Desktops

Quickbooks Pro 2008 installed on XP SP2 Quickbooks say this is a windows issue. I believe otherwise. A brand new computer with XP SP2 - loaded QB Pro 2008. When starting the program a grey box pops up stating that the registration txt file needs to removed and QB reinstalled. The program goes no further than stay in this loop when you try the above then sends an error report to intuit. This is genuine software and license. Have reinstalled, cleaned registries and even done a fresh reinstallation of XP any suggestions would help...

    Checked and it is definately loaded with Net 2.0!

  • Andy Harris Aug 01, 2008

    Yes Net 2.0 is loaded - Can there be a conflict with Firefox?

    Dear Wizbits,



    I guess the question we all are asking is, have you contacted Intiut's Tech Support and what do they say (or blame) the problem is?



    Thanks.

    Did you install .net 2.0 on that machine?

    QB needs .net installed to run.

There is SP3 for XP and I find a lot of stations are a whole lot happier with SP3.
Will it change what QB is doing? I doubt it, but it does make the machine happier.
Can it be Firefox? Maybe.

I would next recommend calling Intuit to see if they have any recommendations. I have found depending on the support tech you talk to at the time at Intuit, and different answers you can get. I skip the free help from them, and go for the gold (we do pay for that once a year). QB has become such a convoluted program, fixes that used to work, no longer apply.

I run QB Pro 08 at 17 different offices, and don't have any problems with it.

I have Quickbooks 2008 and agree with Coss71, you need .NET 2.0 in order for it to run properly in addition to SP2.

Hello no1sugard, go to this "Website," and "Download the Updates" for Windows XP
(Service Pack 3)."
  • First make sure that you have [SP1 and SP2] already installed in your Computer?
  • To {check} which "Service Pack" you have already?
  • If not?
  • Then you must "Download SP1 and SP2 first!"
  • Open "the Computer Properties," by [Alt / Right] clicking on the Computer in the 'shortcut menu' of the "Start Menu."
If this information helped? Return and give a "Helpful Rating," please!
Thanks, paul7of9

No audio output after reinstalling windows xp sp2


Without knowing ur brand of computer i would have to assume that u did a clean install. Go to the manufacturer's website and download the drivers for ur brand of computer. Once u install all of the basic drivers, everything should be as good as new.

Game guard dump_wmimmc.sys


Cloaked Malware. The Process is packed and/or encrypted using a software packing process. DUMP_WMIMMC.SYS has been the subject of the following behavior:
Created as a new Background Service on the machine
Loaded and Executed as a System Driver File
Deleted as a process from disk
Created as a process on disk

This file I believe it is from GameGuard, Nprotect.

I don't believe so. You might need an older version of office installed on your pc though.

While you enter the windows when the welcome sreen comes and ask you to password in the administrator account now press Ctrl+alt+del key. Then the username and password comes. In the username type "guest" and no entry in the password. Now you can enter into the windows and change the administrator password or create the new administrator account and try it.please inform when the new prob occurs.
