Hello Austin,

In order to resolve that issue, you will need to uninstall and then reinstall QuickBooks either from the full download or you can just use an installation CD.

  • Perform a clean install of QuickBooks.
  • And then download the latest release for your version of QuickBooks.
  • After that start QuickBooks.

Error 1334 on QuickBooks 2012


In QuickBooks, you usually get the “error 1334” message when you are installing, repairing, or updating QuickBooks. When this happens, you may receive one of the following error messages: “Error 1334. Error writing to file [file name]. Verify that you have access to that directory” or “Error 1334. The file cannot be installed. Insert the QuickBooks CD and retry”.

The possible reason for this error is corrupted Microsoft .NET Framework or a damaged or missing QuickBooks installation file. There are different methods on how to fix it. Since you received the error when opening QuickBooks, open your QuickBooks company file. It uses the “.qbw” extension name. Search for your company’s file then double-click the company “.qbw” file. It should fix the problem.

If you don’t see any “.qbw” file, unhide hidden files and folders. Open Windows Explorer then click Tools and then Folder Options. Select View tab then slightly scroll down the list. In “Hidden files and folders”, select “Show hidden files and folders”. Uncheck “Hide extensions for known file types” and “Hide protected operating system files” then click OK.

If you still can’t find the company file, search your hard drive. Click Start and then Search. In “What do you want to search for”, select “All files and folders”. In “All or part of the file name”, enter without quotes “*.qbw” then click Search. You will see the search results on the screen. Just double-click the file when you see it to open it in QuickBooks.
