There is a very simple solution to your problem. If you think back a little, you will remember that you entered your license number and product code for QuickBooks installation initially. An encrypted entitlement file contains that information. Whenever that entitlement file becomes damaged, Quick Books error 3371 status code 11118 occurs.

To repair it you need to rename the offending file, register again and you will be fine.

To do so, carry out following procedure:
