An unexpected error reported while trying to run QuickBooks


This error is caused because QuickBooks may be downloaded a background update that is not installed completely. Or an incorrect version of the .Dll file QuickBooks used.

Intuit recommends 2 methods for this issue. For the best result, do the techniques in the order shown:

Solution 1:

1. Update QuickBooks to the latest release. For the latest one go this site.

2. Run reboot.bat.

  • Open the folder containing the reboot.bat file:

         a)      Wondows 7/ Vista: Right-click the “QuickBooks” icon >> select “Open file location”.

         b)      Windows XP: Right-click the “QuickBooks” icon>>select “Properties” >> click “Find Target”.

  • Double-click the “reboot.bat” file.

If the problem still persist, try Solution 2:

  • Perform a clean install of QuickBools. It is necessary manually to remove QuickBooks installation files & folders left behind by the Microsoft Add / Remove Programs utility.
